EXIM signs MoU with 13 lenders
Magyar Eximbank and its credit insurance arm, which operate under the moniker EXIM, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the heads of thirteen local lenders on Thursday, state news wire MTI reported.
EXIM also signed a framework agreement on providing the lenders with EUR 84 million and HUF 77 billion in financing.
EXIM refinanced a total of HUF 1.114 trillion of credit for Hungarian exporters in the period between 2014 and 2017, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said at the signing.
