Borrowing and the government debt

The Debt Office mainly borrows on behalf of the state by raising loans in the Swedish and international capital markets. The Debt Office finances deficits in the central government budget or amortises the central government debt when there is a surplus.

The plan for financing is based, in part, on a forecast of the central government net borrowing requirement and for the existing central government debt.

Here, some general and detailed accounts of the Debt Office borrowing and the central government’s indebtedness are presented. The accounts comprise both outcome and forecasts where such are available.
