CAIRO – 28 January 2018: Six Banks offered a loan worth $602 million to Suez Canal Authority (SCA), banking sources told Al- Shorouk newspaper.
The banking League is waiting for the Ministry of Finance’s endorsement to continue the procedures.
The league included the National Bank of Egypt, Banque Misr, Banque du Caire, Suez Canal, Arab African Bank and Commercial International bank, according to the sources.
The sources said that the SCA will use this loan in executing structural projects.
