Borrowing Program

QTC announces its indicative annual borrowing program following the release of the Queensland State Budget, which is typically in June each year. An update is provided to the market following the release of the Government’s Mid-Year Fiscal and Economic Review, generally in December.

2018-19 indicative term-debt borrowing program

Following the Queensland 2018–19 State Budget release, QTC estimates it will borrow AUD8.0 billion of term debt in the 2018–19 financial year. This is a reduction of approximately AUD1.8 billion from what was forecast in QTC’s 2017–18 borrowing program. The reduction in QTC’s borrowing requirement in 2018–19 is due to pre-funding undertaken by QTC in 2017–18.
