EXIMBANK OF RUSSIA provided funds to the Eurasian Development Bank to finance the supply of modern Russian passenger cars to Armenia.
“To date, EXIMBANK OF RUSSIA JSC has already carried out a number of joint deals with the Eurasian Development Bank, mainly for the supply of equipment to Kazakhstan.

The supply will be implemented through an interbank lending scheme. We are glad that our mutually beneficial cooperation with the Eurasian Development Bank allows us to deliver hi-tech products of the Russian railway engineering industry to foreign buyers,” Tatyana Sakharova, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of EXIMBANK OF RUSSIA JSC.
