Project objectives: The facility will allow the Republic of Lithuania to hedge short-term and long-term exposure to Yen/US$ rate fluctuations that may lead to a funding shortfall or increased funding cost in US$ terms for the client via one or a series of cross-currency options and swaps.
The facility will encourage better assets/liabilities management on the part of the client and will contribute towards a successful implementation of the infrastructure projects financed by the EBRD.
