Ecuador gets one-year grace period on China Development Bank credit line- Reuters

Ecuador has negotiated a one-year grace period on a credit line from China Development Bank (CDB) that will allow the South American nation to delay $417 million in payments, the finance minister said on Wednesday.

“We’ve obtained relief … in the capital payment of a tranche of debt with China, with CDB specifically, that will give us relief for one year of $417 million,” Richard Martinez said in a virtual news conference.
