The Austrian Treasury has revised its 2022 funding outlook today. This follows the budgetary speech of our Federal Minister of Finance in Parliament on October 12. This also included an updated deficit forecast for this year, which is largely impacted by government’s support measures to address the energy crisis.

The funding outlook 2022 (initially published on December 10, 2021) is now revised as follows:

  • Total issuance 2022 (all instruments): EUR 67 – 69 bn (vs. previous estimate of EUR 60 – 65 bn)
  • thereof Republic of Austria Government Bonds (RAGB) issuance 2022: around EUR 44 bn (vs. previous estimate of around EUR 40 bn)
  • Short-term debt instruments outstanding as of end-2022: minimum of EUR 22 bn (vs. previous estimate of minimum EUR 18 bn)

The 2023 funding outlook will be published on December 14, 2022.
