According to the draft General State Budget Law (PGE) of 2023, the gross issuance by the Public Treasury next year will be 256,930 million euros, which represents an increase of 8.2% compared to what is estimated for this yeardue to the rise in interest rates.

For its part, the net indebtedness of the Public Treasury in 2023 will be reduced by 5,000 million euros, up to 70,000 million. Breaking down by type of instrument, the Treasury Bills are expected to provide negative net financing of 5,000 million, so that the State bonds and obligations, together with the rest of the debts in euros and in foreign currency, will contribute the remaining 75,000 million.
