Denmark plans to issue 65 billion Danish kroner ($9.90 billion) in government bonds in 2022, with new bond lines including the country's already well-flagged debut green bond and a new inflation-linked bond, the central bank said.

The country's total borrowing requirement amounts to DKK146 billion, with the net financing requirement amounting to minus DKK47 billion, it said.

The expected issuance from the green bond, which will be launched on Jan. 19, is up to DKK15 billion out of the total bond sales target of DKK65 billion, it said.

The planned new inflation-linked bond will be opened in the second half of 2022, replacing the existing on-the-run November 2030-dated inflation-linked bond.

The issuance of nominal bonds will continue to be concentrated on the two- and 10-year bonds, but the government may also issue in the existing 30-year, November 2052-dated bond, the central bank said. It added that the five-year maturity segment will no longer be included in the list of on-the-run issues.
