Over the last 12 months, the stock of gross debt in a normal payment situation increased by the equivalent of $4.852 billion, primarily due to a decrease in foreign currency debt by $5.098 billion and an increase in local currency debt by an equivalent amount of $9.950 billion.

In March, for the second consecutive month, obligations under foreign law – external debt – decreased by $547 million, adding to the cut of $1.183 million in February. However, obligations under Argentine law increased by $17.054 billion.

During the first four months of the government, external debt rose by $723 million, while in local currency, due to the devaluation in December 2023, it decreased by the equivalent of $22.973 billion.
