Russia to Set Interest Rate on $1 Billion Serbian Loan, RTV Says

November 23, 2012

Russia’s Finance Ministry will probably decide this week or next on the interest rate it will charge Serbia for a $1 billion loan, Radio Televizija Vojvodine reported, citing Serbia’s Mining and Natural Resources Minister Milan Bacevic.

Other terms on the sovereign loan, which should be cheaper than commercial borrowing, have been agreed, including that an initial $300 million will help finance Serbia’s spending this year, while the rest will be for 2013 and disbursed in three parts, the report said, quoting Bacevic.
