Per capita debt is Kc161,000.

"A more effective use of disposable liquidity in the state coffers enables state debt stabilisation," the ministry said.

The state budget showed a surplus of Kc1.5bn at the end of June, against a deficit of Kc31.5bn in H1 last year, which also helped stabilise the debt.

In Q1, the ministry sold medium-term and long-term bonds for Kc117bn. It expects to sell bonds for up to Kc230bn this year.

State debt increased by Kc16bn to Kc1,683bn last year marking the slowest growth rate since 1996.

The state debt is the debt of the central government and is accrued by state budget deficit accumulation. It is financed by treasury bills, government bonds, direct loans and loans from the European Investment Bank (EIB).
