Turk Eximbank Gets $430M Under World Bank Guarantee

Funding shows confidence in Turkey's economy amid crisis from global pandemic, says Turkish trade minister.

Turk Eximbank is obtaining €380 million ($430 million) from a consortium of international banks, Turkey's trade minister said on Monday.
Half of the principal amount of the funding was guaranteed by the World Bank Group's lending arm, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), Ruhsar Pekcan said in a statement.
She highlighted that the 10-year funding was provided at a "much more affordable" cost than a eurobond issue with a similar term under the current conditions.
Showing the confidence in Turkey's economy amid the crisis over the global pandemic, the fund will open a new loan window for exporters financing working capital and investment expenses, Pekcan said.
She underlined that the transaction was the first in Turkey for the banking sector under the partial guarantee of the World Bank and the second in the world.
Some 70% of the loan will be provided for small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), Pekcan said, adding:
"At least 10% of the loan will be available for companies evaluated under the new definition of women's participation developed with the World Bank." -
