Paris Club claims 2015

The Paris Club releases data on its claims as of 31 December 2010

June 29, 2011

Since 2008, the Paris Club has published on an annual basis the amount of its claims on foreign countries.

The table published on the Paris Club website shows the total amount of claims as of 31 December 2010 held by Paris Club members on each debtor country, with a split between Official Development Assistance (ODA) claims and non-Official Development Assistance claims.

The total of Paris Club claims, excluding late interest, amounts to USD 352.8 billion, of which USD 202.4 billion represents ODA claims and USD 150.4 billion represents non Official-Development Assistance claims.

Some amounts on which Paris Club creditors decided to provide debt relief may still appear in this table for technical reasons, especially delays in the signing of bilateral agreements implementing Paris Club agreements, in particular claims on countries eligible for the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative that reached their completion point in 2010 (such as the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, the Republic of the Congo, the Republic of Liberia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo or the Togolese Republic).

Around 8.1% of Paris Club claims (roughly USD 28.5 billion) are owed by heavily indebted poor countries. The Paris Club intends to cancel most of these claims through HIPC relief or additional bilateral relief for countries that graduate from the HIPC initiative.

Paris Club creditors hold USD 285.3 billion in claims on middle income countries (excluding countries eligible for the HIPC initiative).
