The government will borrow ¢1.77 billion from Treasury bills this Thursday, April 6, 2023.
This will be done via the issuance of the 91-day, 182-day and 364-day T-bills.
The proceeds is expected to be used to refinance maturing bills worth ¢1.68 billion.
Demand for the short term securities rebounded again, following improved investor sentiments about the economy.
Last week, the government accepted ¢1.60 billion out of total bids tendered worth ¢1.62 billion. The uptake exceeded the auction target as demand picked up.
Interest rates however rose marginally as the government secured more than 21.43% from the Treasury bills sale.
The increase in interest rates was expected due to the hike in the policy rate of the Bank of Ghana to 29.5%.
Interest rates inched up as the Central Bank increased its base lending rate to banks last Monday, March 27, 2023, to check the high inflation.
Both the 91-day and 182-day T-bills went up marginally by 0.51 and 0.42 percentage points to 19.38% and 21.85% respectively.
