Taipei, Nov. 7 (CNA) The public debt has remained stable for the August-October period, with every citizen shouldering a debt burden of NT$204,000 (US$6,778), according to the latest statistics published by the Ministry of Finance Monday. The statistics show that the central government's outstanding public debts extending for more than one year stood at NT$4.6 trillion, while the outstanding public debts for less than one year stood at NT$131.7 billion. The debt burden per capita is calculated based on the division of a combination of the two by the country's total population. (By Eva Feng and Lilian Wu)
