LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), March 24 (SeeNews) - The Slovenian government said on Tuesday it has mandated six international banks as lead managers for a new euro-denominated issue of three-year government debt.

Parallel with that, Barclays Bank PLC, BNP Paribas, Commerzbank, Credit Agricole CIB, Goldman Sachs International Bank and HSBC will also lead manage an increase of Slovenia's outstanding 1.1875% notes due on March 14, 2029 (ISIN: SI0002103842), the government said in a statement.

The new three-year debt will mature in March 2023, the statement read, adding that the transaction is expected to be launched in the near future, subject to market conditions.
