Autonomous Descentralized Governments will not receive subsidized loans
Posted On 22 Jun 2014
The State Bank won’t subsidize loans to Autonomous Decentralized Governments (Municipalities and Provincial Councils) for construction of projects in their jurisdictions.
President Rafael Correa criticized during his Weekly address the big financial support that the State assumes in projects, which according to the president, should be competence of the local governments.”Credits for subsidies of up to95% were given” said Correa.
The president added that subsidies will only continue in three cases: Land registry update works (50% subsidy), risk management for prevention Works (50%) and pre-investment studies (60%).
