Nov 10, Colombo: The Government of Korea has agreed to grant a concessionary loan of a sum equivalent to US$ 500 million to Sri Lanka for development purposes with a view to further strengthening the friendship and the economic cooperation between the two countries.

The loan is scheduled to be given within the period from 2017 to 2019 from the Economic Development Corporation Fund of the Export and Import Bank of Korea.

The Korean loan aid is granted at very low interest rates with a 40 year repayment period including a 10 year grace period.
