Release Information

In accordance with the International Monetary Fund's website:

Gross external debt, at any given time, is the outstanding amount of those actual current, and not contingent, liabilities that require payment(s) of principal and/or interest by the debtor at some point(s) in the future and that are owed to non-residents by residents of an economy. The main criterion for a liability to be included in the gross external debt of the country is that it is issued by a resident and is owed to a non-resident, regardless of whether it is issued on domestic or international, money or capital markets. The same principle is applied for transactions - only those between residents and non-residents are recorded. In the debt tables the BNB records only the amount of tranches actually disbursed.

A summary methodology is provided at the International Monetary Fund website.
