3rd NBS loan from Japan's EXIM Bank

Japan's EXIM Bank approved its third loan for the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) in the last week of July, worth 20 billion JPY (5.94 billion Sk). The NBS will evaluate the loan contract before the end of August. The loan is designed for commercial banks operating in Slovakia, selected by the EXIM Bank of Japan. The first part of the new loan will most likely be extended this September.
