On 25 September 2015 the Japan Bank for International Corporation (JBIC) signed an overseas investment loan and guarantee agreement of USD 50 million with Taiwanese Hotai Finance Co., Ltd. The agreement funds the company's sales financing business of Japanese automobile brands Toyota and Lexus in Taiwan. A number of Japanese banks will co-finance the loan with an additional USD 50 million, which JBIC will partially guarantee.
In this context the Bank stated: 'This loan will financially support the overseas business deployment of such Japanese automobile manufactures, and thereby contribute to improving and strengthening the international competitiveness of the Japanese automobile industry by supporting the automobile sales financing business.'

Loans support projects in specific sectors or with a specific purpose of interest to Japan. Further information can be found on the Bank's website under overseas investment loans.
