The Central Bank (BDL) has redeemed on behalf of the government a $1.5 billion Eurobond.
The eight-year bond had a coupon rate of 5.45 percent.

The next issues will mature in March and April 2020.

Lebanon has to refinance more than $4 billion in Eurobonds and around LL15 trillion ($10 billion) in lira-denominated Treasury bills.

Meeting the issue has defied predictions of default in the press.
