The PEPP And The APP Programmes Combined Would Cover Almost 90% Of The EU’s Estimated Financing Needs

Intermoney | Based on the ECB’s macroeconomic forecasts, we can extrapolate that the financing needs of the EMU countries will be around €1.5 Tr between 2020 and 2021. And if 73.5% of the PEPP continues to be used to acquire sovereign debt from the different Eurozone’s members, the programme would cover almost 65% of the needs for this year and next. All this, without taking into account the €120 Bn from the reinforced Asset Purchase Programme (APP) and the €360 Bn that it should add up to mid-2021.
