Public debt jumps to record level

 

 The government says the public debt jumped to a record 1 trillion 938 billion dollars at the end of  last year.  
The increase was due to higher borrowings by the government as well as the impact of  the sliding dollar on the external portion of  the debt.              
The currency depreciation caused the country's external debt to rise almost eight percent.
