ÁKK modified the 2020 financing plan late in August to accommodate spending on pandemic defense and government stimulus.

It noted that the Finance Ministry had raised its target for the full-year cash flow-based general government deficit to HUF 3.6 trillion, up from a HUF 1.89 tln target when ÁKK issued the previous modification of its 2020 financing plan late in May.

Charts in ÁKKʼs release on Thursday show issues, including switch auctions, reached HUF 9.105 tln at the end of September, compared to a HUF 10.956 tln full-year target.

In the modified financing plan released late in August, AKK put total gross issuance at HUF 11.946 tln for the full year.

The charts in ÁKKʼs release on Thursday show issues of forint bonds for institutional investors reached HUF 3.957 tln at end-September, 80% of the HUF 4.968 tln full-year target.

Issues of forint bonds for retail investors reached HUF 3.53 tln, 85% of the HUF 4.165 tln full-year target.

Issues of FX bonds on international markets stood at HUF 1.406 tln, practically level with the full-year target. AKK noted that its strategic target to keep FX debt under 20% of total state debt remains in place.
