Strengthening trade from and within Lebanon, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is providing a US$ 75 million trade finance line to Bank Audi, the largest commercial bank in Lebanon and one of the leading regional banks. By joining the EBRD’s Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP), Bank Audi will become the third issuing bank in Lebanon.
