Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 3.7 billion in July, which is SEK 2.2 billion higher than The Debt Office’s latest forecast.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 0.8 billion higher than calculated.

The Debt Office’s net lending was SEK 4.6 billion higher than forecasted due to temporarily higher lending to the Riksbank.
