Slovenia plans to issue a 60-year bond subject to market conditions and has commissioned BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs Bank Europe SE and HSBC to manage the issue, the Finance Ministry said.

This would be the longest maturity for a bond Slovenia has ever issued. The treasury currently has a 30-year bond outstanding due in 2050, and a 24-year bond which is due in 2040.
