     NETHERLANDS: The Dutch state is to issue green bonds as of 2019, Wopke
Hoekstra, the finance minister has announced. This would make the Netherlands
the first AAA-rated country to issue government bonds aimed at financing
sustainable investments.
FINLAND: The State Treasury does not publish a calendar of auctions. Information
on upcoming bond auctions is announced approximately one week before the auction
date.
EUROZONE: Market volatility may have dissuaded Athens from issuing 10-year bond
in near future (according to FT report on Nov 29).
