Exim Bank has extended two Lines of
Credit (LOCs) aggregating USD 167.40
million to the Government of Sri Lanka
(GOS) for Upgradation of Southern Railway
Corridor from Colombo to Matara in Sri

New Delhi, March 10- Lines of Credit
worth more than $1 billion extended by
India to Ethiopia have helped the
landlocked country build its sugar and
power industries and rail network,
Ambassador Gennet Zewide said.
“Ethiopia has been net importer of
sugar for so many years. We were the
third largest importer of sugar. Earlier
$200-300 million annually was spent on
sugar but after the line of credit came
in we are not importing sugar. We are
rather selling. By 2015 we are going to
be net exporter of sugar. We will export
to European Union countries.”

Buyer’s Credit under NEIA (BC-NEIA)
 Buyer's Credit under GOI’s National Export Insurance Account (BC-NEIA)
program, was a pioneering innovation lead by the Ministry of Commerce &
Industry’s (MOCI) to promote and boost project exports from India. MOCI, in
conjunction with Exim Bank and ECGC, launched this initiative in April
2011.
 BC-NEIA is a unique financing mechanism that provides a safe mode of
non-recourse financing option to Indian exporters and serves as an
effective market entry tool to traditional as well as new markets in
developing countries, which need deferred credit on medium or long term
basis.
 BC-NEIA is extended by the Exim Bank to the governments of recipient
countries or to the underlying project authorities backed by a sovereign
guarantee.
 NEIA, through ECGC, provides Exim Bank cover upto 100% for the facility
and also cover for exchange rate fluctuation till repayment of the credit.
Buyer’s Credit under NEIA (BC-NEIA)
 The Indian project exporter is backed by a tailored financing package that
meets the funding needs of the project, without impacting the balance
sheet of the Indian project exporter. Indian exporters can obtain payment of
eligible value from Exim Bank, without recourse to them, against
negotiation of shipping documents.
 The Exporter continues to be responsible for the timely and satisfactory
execution of the project, but is free from commercial and political risks
arising out of the financing.
 Facility to cover 85% of contract value, higher amounts can be considered
on a case-to-case basis. A minimum of 75% of the goods and services
under the credit facility is expected to be exported from India. A suitable
relaxation, not exceeding 10%, may be considered for exceptional reasons,
especially in case of projects having civil construction.
 Tenor of the Buyer’s Credit can normally be upto 15 years.
