Brazil’s foreign debt closed out the month of August at US$ 182.62 billion, down US$ 9.7 billion from June, reports the Brazilian Central Bank.

The reduction came with the payment by the government of US$ 2.5 billion in Euro-2005 and Global-2005 bonus bonds, and an advance payment of US$ 5 billion to the International Monetary Fund. The private sector also paid down debts totalling US$ 2.1 billion in the same period.
