Affordable Public Debt Situation and Very Low Interest Rate on External Public Debt
External Government debt portfolio (31 Dec 2021) represents 80% of the total Government debt. The bulk of this portfolio is owed to official multilateral and bilateral donors chiefly on concessional terms. This favorable composition of the external government debt portfolio allows to sustain exceptionally low portfolio weighted average interest rate of only 0.95% per annum.
Rapidly growing budget revenues, very low average interest rate and flat repayment profile with easily affordable annual repayment volumes have been the key factors behind the downward sloping and consistently low government external debt service ratios. Only very small portion of budget revenues is earmarked for debt service in any single fiscal year, allowing to devote budget appropriations to the fullest possible extent towards addressing national development priorities and to funding social assistance programs.
54% of the external government debt portfolio (31 DEC 2021) carries fixed interest rate. This safeguards Georgia's external Government debt service parameters from exogenous interest rate fluctuations and ensures that external government debt service costs will remain low and affordable despite uncertain global economic environment.
