The latest figures are from November-2015. Public and private external debt (of companies) rose.
These are the statistics of the Central Bank of Ecuador (BCEfor its Spanish acronym) until November last year. Thus, the State has commitments abroad for $ 20,575,000 (or 20.8% of Gross Domestic Product-GDP), ie $ 3,662 million more than it was owed until November 2014.
While the foreign debt of private companies rose 500 million to settle, last November, at 6.944 million.
But the government has a higher debt, when its domestic obligations are added. According to the BCE, until November, the domestic public debt reached 12.385 million dollars.
The bulk of this debt are the State bonds (11.612 million). $ 697 million were paid for interest. Adding the domestic and foreign public debt, the state accumulates liabilities that are 33% of GDP.
