It was also requested “the establishment of powers to incur greater internal indebtedness than the authorized amount, for an amount equivalent to the lesser external indebtedness in accordance with the requested authorization and vice versa,” according to the Revenue Law project.
“With this proposal, it would be possible to take advantage of the favorable conditions that would arise in the national and international financial markets, to carry out financing operations or swap internal liabilities for external ones and vice versa, in better conditions for the purpose of managing risks associated with the debt. public or for the development of local markets”, he adds.
