STOCKHOLM Dec 12 The Swedish central bank said
on Monday it would not participate in the exchanges of
government bonds carried out by the Swedish National Debt Office
in late January 2017.
The Riksbank, which is buying 245 billion Swedish crowns
($26.65 billion) of government bonds as part of its quantitative
easing programme, said it does not purchase securities directly
from the Swedish National Debt Office.
It said it does not intend to participate in the Swedish
National Debt Office's exchanges either.
