Regarding the way in which the bonds remaining for the current fiscal year will be issued, Minfin authorities specified that they have begun the transition from the physical title in the issuance of the rebate debt to an electronic system, also known as dematerialization.

Rosa María Ortega de Ramazzini, director of the Public Credit Directorate (DCP), explained to that "... progressively the physical securities will be removed and from June they will be going to the market, with two physical calls on Tuesdays and also with annotation on account. We are following the route as other countries are doing in terms of eliminating the physical titles', both systems will be maintained until the quota is exhausted, that is, Q1,000,49 million ($136 million)."

For Ortega, the transition to the electronic system will represent certain benefits for Minfin, "... such as savings in the use of paper, new security systems, 'because if the paper is lost, there is the record', as well as better administration and collection, because everything will go to an account. On the operational side, it will be possible to negotiate with the electronic registry that can travel from one place to another and transactions can be made at any time.
