Agence France Trésor has decided to mandate BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs and Société Générale for the launch of a new OAT linked to the euro area consumer price index (HICP excluding tobacco) in January 2004, depending on market conditions.

This issue follows the launch in October 2001 of OAT€i 2012 , the first bond linked to the consumer price index in the euro zone, and the launch in October 2002 of OAT€i 2032. This bond will have a maturity of 15 years, in order to continue to build the euro zone real yield curve.
