Project Description

On April 3 2017, MIGA issued guarantees for theNon-Honoring of a Sovereign Financial Obligation (NHSFO) to ING and KBC, for an amount of up to EUR332.5 million (including principal, interest, and MIGA premium) against the risk of non-payment by GoH for its guarantee on the debt obligations of EXIM. MIGA's coverage has a tenor of up to six years.

The project involves the expansion of lending by Hungary Exim, a wholly-owned financial institution of the Government of Hungary. Hungary Exim is the official state-owned export credit agency tasked with promoting Hungarian exports by granting loans and guarantees to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that export to markets where obtaining affordable financing can be challenging.
