Bulgaria's government debt consisted of internal debt of EUR 3.13 B and external debt of EUR 3.65 B.
In nominal terms, the debt grew by approximately EUR 59 M compared to the level registered in end-October.
This was mostly due to the issuing of Treasury bonds on the domestic market during the review month.

As regards the structure of government debt, the share of internal debt amounted to 46.2% and the share of external debt stood at 53.8%.

Since the beginning of 2013, payments denominated in EUR had the biggest share, at 62.1%, followed by payments denominated in BGN, at 33.4% and payments denominated in USD, at 4.2%.
Government guaranteed debt reached EUR 407.8 M in November 2013.
In nominal terms, it registered a decrease by nearly EUR 8.8 M compared to the previous month, which was mostly due to the repayments made on external government guaranteed loans over the review month.

The government-guaranteed debt-to-GDP ratio was 1%.
