The Public Debt Office is the cornerstone of debt strategy in the Ministry of Finance. It supports liquidity and ensures stability in the local financial market through issuance and placement of treasury bonds. In this context, the Public Debt Office establishes referential interest rates in order to facilitate access by Chilean business to the capital market.
To accomplish its objective, the bureau as part of the International Finance Unit, acts in coordination with the Treasury of the Republic, the Budget Office, and with the Central Bank in its role as fiscal agent in the placement and administration of bonds. It also monitors investment of temporary surpluses resulting from the administration of the budget, and proposes capital market reforms to promote the integration of domestic and international financial markets.
