The UK is recording the first fall in public debt since the epidemic. “Thanks Interest Rates” – Executive Digest

The monthly public debt of the British government hit 36.60 billion euros, a relief from the record amount reached a year ago, when the first shock of the epidemic reached 54.1 billion euros.

Downing Street analysts predicted in early March that debt would fall to 10.3% of GDP this year.

The British government opened its purse strings last year with health measures to mitigate the impact of Govt-19, as well as wage guarantees to prevent a significant increase in unemployment during the worst economic crisis the Kingdom of Her Majesty has experienced in 300 years.

However, growth prospects have improved as the number of vaccines in the country has increased, as capital economist Ruth Gregory told Bloomberg in a report.

In terms of GDP, the UK’s public sector net debt has risen to 98.5% since 1962, equivalent to 1 2.51 billion.

Downing Street’s lifeline interest rates are very low, unlike previous decades, thus reducing debt maintenance costs.

Following the data, Finance Minister Rishi Sunak reiterated his plan to “keep public funds stable, keep debt in check for a short period of time, but not compromise on economic growth.”
