The data describes the development of government debt.
A motivation of the Finnish government's debt management is the fulfillment of the public financing requirment. Another motivation is maintaining the interest rate risk related to borrowing and resultant interest costs at a level that goes with the established long-term strategic interest rate risk target.
The costs of government debt are affected by changes in general interst rate levels in the euro zone.
Finland's State Treasury is responsible for maintaining statistics on government debt.
