Exim Bank Extends Fresh Credit Lines To Mali And Djibouti
Export-Import Bank of India (Exim Bank) has, at the behest of Government of India (GOI), extended two Lines of Credit (LOC) aggregating US$ 40 million to Mali and Djibouti. The US$ 30 million Line of Credit to Mali has been earmarked for financing electricity transmission and distribution project from Cote d'Ivoire to Mali while the US$ 10 million to Djibouti will be utilized for financing a Cement project.
Both the LOC Agreements were signed in New Delhi, on April 13, 2007, by Mr. Prabhakar Dalal, Chief General Manager, on behalf of Exim Bank and Mr. Abou Bakar TRAORE, Minister of Economy and Finance, on behalf of Government of Mali and Mr. Youssouf Omar Doualeh, Ambassador, on behalf of Government of Djibouti in India.

Another LOC for US$ 20.62 mn has been used for acquisition of railway coaches and locomotives from India. The LOC to Djibouti now being extended is in addition to the earlier LOC of US$ 10 mn extended for the Portland cement project being set up in Djibouti.
