Medium-Term Debt Management Strategy FY2020/21-FY2023/24 6 | P a g e

2.3 Public Debt Trajectory

Figure 1 highlights the net financing flows for the Central Government domestic and external

debt portfolios and the trajectory of the stock of total public debt from end-March 2019 to

end-December 2019. Financing activities of the GOJ over the review period reflected a

well- thought-out strategy to reduce net financing inflows. Amortization of a fixed-rate domestic

BIN in July 2019 of $40,523.5 million, a fixed-rate external BIN in June 2019 of

$11,586.8 million and net inflows of approximately $16,043.6 million from the re-opening of the

2045 JAMAN global bond in September 2019 were major contributors to net financing outflows

of $30,647.5 million for the period. Net outflows from the Central Government domestic and

external debt portfolios were $16,006.8 million and $14,640.6 million respectively.

Notes: Financing flows and total public debt are in millions of Jamaica dollars.

Throughout the review period, financing operations were consistent with GOJ’s objective to

reduce the debt-to-GDP. As highlighted in Figure 2, debt-to-GDP is expected to continue

trending downwards and is projected at 90.2 percent at end-FY2019/20, a reduction of

4.2 percentage points, compared to the 94.4 percent recorded at end-FY2018/19. With continued

commitment to strong fiscal discipline and prudent debt management, the GOJ is on track to

realize further reductions in the debt-to-GDP consistent with the legislated target of 60.0 percent

or less by FY2025/26.
