Thursday, 07 July 2011
Swedish government payments resulted in a deficit of Skr20.4 billion in June. The Swedish Debt Office's forecast pointed to a deficit of Skr14.7 billion.
The According to a report from the Swedish debt office on Thursday, it notes that the difference between outcome and forecast is mainly due to payment lags between months within the Debt Office's net lending and does not affect the outcome for the full year.

The national debt amounted to Skr1060 billion by June 30th.
