Monthly auctions will take place, each for the total amount of a given bond.

At the same time, it will help attract foreign investors to the local market, in order to achieve a more integrated financial market.
This issuance schedule may be subject to modifications in the event of a significant change in market conditions. In that case, the change will be reported in due course.
