The National Debt Bureau has reported that Suriname’s overall debt currently stands at US$3.2 billion. On Wednesday, June 23, 2022, President Chandrikapersad Santokhi said in front of the National Assembly that the interest and repayment responsibilities are so enormous that, even if they were satisfied, there would not be money left over for regular expenses like wages, social benefits, and subsidies.
Debt in whole is $4 billion.
Parameters suggest that the Surinamese economy is beginning to improve, according to President Santokhi. On December 13, 2022, the head of state gave a lengthy press conference during which he covered Suriname’s financial situation. The $4 billion in debt is being restructured by the government.
The whole debt has grown by US$ 0.8 billion over the past six months. We kindly ask that the government provide the State of Origin and Resource Spending of that US$ 0.8 billion, and we appreciate it in advance.
