The crisis measure in the OECD Arrangement means that export credit agencies in member countries will still be able to participate with up to 50 per cent in project finance transactions in high income OECD countries with a credit period of 10-14 years.
The measure was introduced in 2008 as a result of the financial crisis and increased the participation allowed for export credit agencies from 35 to 50 percent of the loan.
The crisis measure extended until the end of 2011 thus means that also next year EKF will be able to guarantee a larger share of the contract amount than usual in long term project finance transactions in high income OECD countries.
