The private sectors external debt amounted to EUR 64.6bn and its share decreased to 70% of the total from 74% one year earlier after a 6% y/y expansion. The medium and long-term external private debt shrank by 3.2% y/y to EUR 37.25bn at the end of February; while the short-term debt and the non-residents deposits increased. The public sector external debt on the opposite soared by 24% y/y to EUR 27.2bn and its share increased to 30% of the total from 26% one year earlier.
