Trade finance

On 28 August 2014, the Australian export credit agency Efic published its 2013/14 annual report. The report included a list of all beneficiaries of trade finance for the given fiscal year.
One of these beneficiaries was Chile's Minera Escondida Limitada, which was offered an export loan worth 111.2 million AUD. The loan will be used for EPCM (Engineering, procurement and construction management) services and capital equipment.
Given that Efic does not provide the exact date that the trade finance deal was signed, the most conservative date, i.e. the 30 June 2014, was set as the inception date.
