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. This methodology was revised after the May 2021 reference date as noted in this document. 

Data are revised and included in disseminated statistics when corrected or more complete returns are received.
