Brazil: Net Public Debt in September 2011

In September, Brazil's public debt reached USD 1.48 trillion, down 4.4% over the previous month. In relative terms, the debt reached 37.16% of GDP in September from 39.20 in August. However, a significant share of this decline is related to currency devaluation, because the Brazilian government has cash with in dollars. The effect of exchange rate variation meant a decrease of 2% of public debt relative to GDP.
