In this sense, the amount that was requested to the banking institution was deferred to payments for 20 years.
Yucatán has been included among the states whose public debt has grown the most in the last year, according to the report ‘Obligaciones Financieras de las Entidades Federativas de México Segundo Trimestre de 2021’ (Financial Obligations of Mexico’s Federal Entities Second Quarter of 2021).
From 2004 to date, Yucatán has requested around 38 loans to banking institutions to meet productive public investment needs and others cataloged as covering short-term needs.
Regarding how Yucatán maintains its debt, the financial corporation Fitch Ratings rated the state’s public debt as stable.
This rating is due to the fact that it covers its debt service with its annual cash flow.
