World Bank free Armenia from additional interest rate on loans for another fiscal year

YEREVAN, July 2. /ARKA/. Prompted by the worsening socio-economic situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic and Nagorno-Karabakh post-war developments, as well as the slow economic recovery, on April 30, 2021, Armenia's Ministry of Finance officially applied to the International Development Agency (part of the World Bank Group) with a request to extend the decision on cancelling  the additional 1.7% interest rate on loans for another year.

The decision on the application of an additional interest rate (1.7% per annum) on a number of loans provided to Armenia by the International Development Agency was canceled for one year, and was  not applied during the fiscal year (from July  1 2020 to  June 30, 2021).
