The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is responding to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the economy of Morocco, with a €145 million financing facility to Bank of Africa – BMCE Group. This is the first investment to be delivered under the EBRD’s coronavirus Resilience Framework that was set up to meet the immediate short-term liquidity and working capital needs of existing clients.

Under the agreement with Bank of Africa – BMCE Group the EBRD will provide a €100 million loan for on-lending to corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises that are experiencing a decrease in activity, turnover and profitability, to help them address their liquidity needs. In addition, the EBRD is increasing an existing uncommitted multi-currency trade finance limit by US$ 50 million (€45 million equivalent) to facilitate export and import transactions.

Morocco is a founding member of the EBRD and became a country of operations in 2012. To date, the EBRD has invested €2.2 billion in Morocco through 64 projects.
