Project Description

The EBRD has signed loans worth a total of €200 million for Alpha Bank (ABG) subsidiaries in Romania and Serbia, as part of a package approved in July 2010. The aim is to provide medium and long-term debt financing through ABG’s subsidiaries for on-lending to private businesses operating in the three countries.

The EBRD investments are part of the Joint International Financial Institutions Action Plan set up by the EBRD, the World Bank Group and the European Investment Bank (EIB) to provide over €24 billion in support of the banking sectors in the region and to fund lending to businesses hit by the global crisis.
