Danish Government Borrowing and Debt 2020

The government budget developed better than expected in 2020. The Danish central government debt amounted to kr. 536 billion, equal to 23 per cent of GDP at the end of 2020. The course of the covid-19 crisis has clearly highlighted the importance of the central government having access to a broad and diversified investor base through multiple financing channels. Despite periods with market turmoil, domestic government bonds were sold at record low yields. On average, nominal government bonds were sold at a yield to maturity of -0.33 per cent p.a. and an average maturity of 11.6 years. Interest costs on the central government debt totalled 0.7 per cent of GDP.

Update to the central government borrowing strategy in the 2nd half of 2020

The government's net financing requirement in 2020 is increased by kr. 70 billion. The increase primarily reflects an additional deferral of tax and VAT payments. The target for issuance of government bonds in 2020 is maintained at kr. 125 billion. Given that the increased borrowing requirement primarily reflects temporary liquidity shifts, it willl be covered by short-term issuances. The outstanding amount of T-bills is expected to be kr. 80-100 billion at the end of 2020.
