Norway launches new ECA backing in push for diversity

(Global Trade Review, London, 5 July 2017) Norwegian export credit agency Giek has launched a new lender guarantee for export-related investments in Norway. The new product will provide guarantees to banks that finance corporate investment in Norway, where the investment directly or indirectly leads to exports. Aimed at boosting diversity in the oil and gas-rich nation, the guarantees will not be applicable to oil and gas processing plants, tourism, real estate development and large infrastructure projects.
