In July, the debt stock totaled BRL 3.341 trillion ($1.07 trillion).

The Internal Federal Public Debt Securities (DPMFi), which is part of the public debt that can be paid in reais, had its stock increased in 1.91% when going from BRL 3.224 trillion ($1.03 trillion) to BRL 3.286 trillion ($1.05 trillion).

According to the National Treasury, this increase is due to the net issuance, that is, more emissions of public bonds than maturities, of BRL 33.08 billion ($10.62 billion), plus the payment of interests of BRL 28.38 billion ($0.11 billion).

The stock of the External Federal Public Debt, obtained from the foreign market, increased 1%, ending last month at BRL 117.57 billion ($37.36 billion).

According to the National Treasury’s report, the variation occurred especially due to the real’s depreciation against currencies that comprise the external debt stock.
