An increase in the market value of federal government securities has raised the federal government's net debt forecasts for 2012/13 and the next three years.
The mid-year economic and fiscal outlook (MYEFO) released on Monday shows net debt of $144 billion is expected this year, up from the $143.3 billion forecast in the May budget.
That would account for 9.4 per cent gross domestic product (GDP), rather than 9.2 per cent.
By 2015/16, net debt is expected to be 7.7 per cent of GDP, rather than the 7.3 per cent forecast in the May budget.
The average net debt position of the major advanced economies is projected to peak at 95 per cent of GDP in 2016, almost 10 times higher than the expected peak in Australia's net debt.
In the 2011/12 financial year, net debt was closer to 10 per cent of GDP. (AAP)
