Definition: Remaining (residual) maturity
External debt - IMF
The period of time until debt payments fall due. In the Guide, it is recommended that short-term remaining maturity of outstanding external debt be measured by adding the value of outstanding short-term external debt (original maturity) to the value of outstanding long-term external debt (original maturity) due to be paid in one year or less.
