Interest payment subsidy

With Decree 313 of April 24, 2013, the Council of Ministers of Belarus authorised the compensation of Belarusbank in 2013-2014 for the export loan (9.43 Mio. USD) it issued to Zhabinka Sugar Plant, based on commercial interest reference rates (CIRRs). CIRRs are the lowest interest rates, which may be applied under the OECD Arrangement on Guidelines for Officially Supported Export Credits" (European Commission). This compensations indirectly provides Zhabinka Sugar Plant with a competitive advantage (through cheaper access to loans), which is most likely to affect foreign commercial interests.

The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets, and from foreign subsidiaries.
