The minimum offered rate was 0.2058% p.a. with a maximum at 0.0201% p.a. ARDAL accepted bids at an average price of 0.1686% p.a., minimum interest was 0.2058% p.a. and the maximum accepted rate was 0.1501% p.a. Representatives of the state informed in the middle of the year that Slovakia has already borrowed enough funds to refinance its debt for this year. It managed to sell government bonds in the first half of the year, particularly in the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and the United States. Overall, since the beginning of the year Slovakia sold government bonds for more than €6.8 billion, and ARDAL also offered treasury bills to investors.
