However, in 2018 these new issues increased by 600,000 million dollars to 1.9 billion and by 2019 a new increase is expected, which will exceed 2 billion.
In relative terms, however, public debt will remain at the same level, 72.6% of the gross domestic product (GDP), thanks to the expected economic growth.
In 2007, before the crisis broke out, the debt in all the countries of the organization represented 49.5% of GDP and at that time Japan’s sovereign bonds accounted for 39% of the total of those traded in Japan. the market of the whole OECD, and the Americans 20%.
In 2018, the relative weight of US securities had increased to 39%, while that of the Japanese had decreased to 26%. (EFE) .-
