Summary

This policy paper explores the aspects of different financing mechanisms including commercial and non-concessional loans, and other grants.

Highlights

  • The basic story of current undisclosed loan terms and conditions starts when the Liberia government pursues a commercial loan.
  • Liberia’s debt-carrying capacity has deteriorated. Its domestic and external public debt remains relatively low compared with regional average and other low income countries.
  • The issue of non-concessional lending attracts attention not only from the fact that the money is expensive, but also in term of uses of the borrowed resources.
