BERLIN (Reuters) – The German government plans to borrow more money in 2019 than it did this year, the finance agency said on Tuesday.
Excluding inflation-linked debt, the agency plans to issue 199 billion euros (179 billion pounds) of debt in 2019, the agency said in a statement. That compares with 173 billion euros this year.
The agency said it planned to issue 156 billion euros in longer-term nominal capital market instruments and 43 billion euros in money market instruments. It added it would also issue between 6 and 10 billion euros in inflation-linked securities.
