Swiss to lend IMF up to $10BN for crisis

Recent Outbreaks Posted on

Switzerland will lend the International Monetary Fund up to $10 billion as part of an international effort to strengthen the global financial system, the Swiss government said Wednesday.

The government decided in a special meeting to provide the IMF with the fixed-term credit line, the Finance Ministry said.

The loan will be part of a larger package pledged by the Group of 20 world leaders who met in London earlier this month. They agreed to strengthen the IMF with $750 million in additional funds. Those loan resources can be used to help countries whose finances have been devastated by the world financial crisis.

The money is to be granted by the Swiss National Bank and backed by the government's guarantee, the ministry said.

The credit line is contingent on parliament approval, it said.
