MANILA  -The Philippine national government debt’s stock increased by 0.4 percent to reach a new record high, pegged at P13.75 trillion at end-February, representing an additional P54.3 billion that month, according to the Bureau of the Treasury.

In February, local debt increased by 0.6 percent or P57.2 billion to P9.44 trillion mainly because the government’s new borrowings were more than the payments made that month.
