In brief: Brazil’s federal debt rises

* Brazil’s federal treasury (Tesouro Nacional) has released its latest monthly report on government debt, according to which the federal public debt (DPF) grew 3.07% in June compared with May, to R$5.17trn (US$1trn). Domestic debt – which accounts for 95.75% of the DPF – expanded by 3.29% to R$5.10trn, while the stock of external debt decreased by 1.77% to R$226bn. The treasury said the nominal increase in the federal debt was due to net issuances amounting to R$183bn and positive interest appropriation to the amount of R$20.6bn. The stock of public federal debt is now expected to close 2021 between R$5.5trn and R$5.8trn.
