Mali’s government to clear XOF100 bln internal debt

(Ecofin Agency) - The Government of Mali moves to clear part of its domestic debt that has been unpaid since last year. The government plans to pay XOF103 billion, to the great satisfaction of local suppliers.

The debt clearance procedure started last week and government says once it is over, “all arrears and money orders of 2018 will be paid.” According to local media, clearing of this year’s debt is also planned.

More than XOF10 billion is dedicated to receivables between XOF101 million and 200 million, XOF6 billion for receivables between XOF201 million and 300 million, and almost the same amount will be used to pay companies with claims between XOF401 million and 500 million. In addition, more than XOF19 billion will be paid to creditors whose amounts are less than 1 billion but more than 500 million and XOF59 billion goes for suppliers whose receivables exceed one billion.

The Malian authorities believe that the measure will help loosen pressure on the private sector and support it in the growth dynamic. It is part of economic reforms aimed at maintaining prudent macroeconomic policies and enhancing the effectiveness of debt management.

While Mali has one of the lowest debt ratios in WAEMU, its public debt is massively dominated by external debt (largely concessional loans), with domestic debt costing about five times more than external debt, according to portfolio analysis.

According to its 2018-20 mid-term public debt strategy, the government relies more on concessional loans, but also aims for the public securities market amid its ambition to diversify its portfolio.
