Debt Office Commentary: The central government’s net borrowing requirement is a measure of its cash flow

Publication 9 June 2020 Debt Office Commentary

The central government net borrowing requirement shows how much money the central government needs to borrow to cover its ongoing operations. The Debt Office makes independent forecasts of the net borrowing requirement, which have an important role in the development of borrowing plans. Accurate forecasts enable the Debt Office to plan and manage borrowing in a way that helps minimise the long-term cost of central government debt.

Sofia Nilsson and Elin Stenbacka are economists at the Swedish National Debt Office’s Economic Analysis Department.
