Developing Countries Face Headwinds

Demand for World Bank loans rises to record levels


The World Bank informed on Monday it expects its nonmarket rate lending to top $43 billion in the current fiscal year as developing countries face economic headwinds, bringing its total for the past four years to more than $150 billion.

According to figures released its International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) lent 23.5 in fiscal 2015 – the highest it has ever been outside a financial crisis. This figure will be expected 25 billion in fiscal 2016.

A decade ago, the IBRD lent about $14 billion, but peaked at $44 billion in fiscal 2010 as the financial crisis stoked demand from middle-income countries.

With global economic growth projected at 2.9% in 2016 – picking up at a slower pace than previously expected – requests from middle-income countries for help from the IBRD has been on the up.
"We are in a global economy where growth is expected to remain weak, so it is critically important that the World Bank play our traditional role of helping developing countries accelerate growth," World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said in a statement.

He added that World Bank lending was "highly complementary" to the International Monetary Fund´s role as the main international crisis lender."The use of these types of loans is important because the Bank is basically signaling to the financial markets that a country´s actions are technically solid, the country will follow through on these commitments and the reforms will help and not hurt the poor and vulnerable."

In February, the World Bank signed a deal with Peru for $2.5 billion in credit lines to help the Andean copper and gold exporter cope with lower global commodity prices and budget pressures. The bank is also in talks with oil exporter Nigeria on loans tied to policy reforms.
