Germany Can't Accurately Forecast 2020 Refinancing Volume

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany cannot accurately forecast its 2020 refinancing volume due to high uncertainty related to the coronavirus pandemic, the head of the country’s finance agency said in a call on Monday.

The agency earlier announced plans to raise the debt issued in the third quarter to 146 billion euros ($164 billion) from an initially planned 56.5 billion euros to help finance the cost of government programmes tackling the impact of the pandemic.
