The SDDS calls for the dissemination of external debt (EXD) of the general government,
the monetary authorities, the banking sector, and all other sectors, to be compiled
in accordance with the fifth edition of the IMF's
Balance of Payments Manual. Data should also be broken down by maturity-short-term
and long-term on an original maturity basis and by instrument.
In addition, the SDDS encourages the dissemination of supplementary information
on future debt service payments, in which the principal and interest components
are separately identified, twice yearly for the first four quarters and the following
two semesters ahead, with a lag of one quarter. The data should also be broken down
into sectors--general government, monetary authorities, the banking sector, and
all other sectors.
Finally, the dissemination of a domestic/foreign currency breakdown of external
debt with quarterly periodicity and timeliness is encouraged.
