The Ministry of Finance (Ministerio de Hacienda) has announced the borrowing plan for the first half of the year, which involves making issuances of debt of US$2 billion (¢1,100,000 million colones), through different types of instruments, in dollars as well as colones.

Hacienda expects to make six “benchmark” issues , some of which are new and some are for new tracts of emissions already registered: to 2018, 2020, 2022, 2025, 2029 and 2035, all fixed rate.
