Surplus for Swedish central government in March

April 10, 2012 - London

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 9.5 billion in March, which is SEK 1.1 billion higher than The Debt Office's latest forecast. The difference is mainly explained by lower interest payments on the central government debt.

Central government agencies' payments and The Debt Office's net lending developed in line with forecast.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 1.2 billion lower than calculated due to exchange rate gains.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of March 2012, central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 0.4 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,071 billion at the end of March.
