Communiqué - Government Debt Restructuring - 02-06-2021

Today, the government of Suriname has announced the proposed modalities of the restructuring of its external debt. The objective is to bring this debt back on a sustainable path, which will benefit the economy of Suriname and its people.

Another smaller part of public debt is owed to Surinamese residents. The Government and the Central Bank of Suriname are determined to make sure that the interests of local creditors are secured in a way that does not endanger banking and financial stability.

The safety of our domestic financial system is also a priority of the International Monetary Fund, which will assist Suriname in its economic program for recovery and growth.
