The Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC; Governor, CEO: Hiroshi Watanabe) signed today an agreement in the amount of up to about USD2,053 thousand (JBIC portion) based on a credit line*1 for supporting the overseas business deployment of Japanese mid-tier enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) already signed with PT. Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Indonesia (MULI), an Indonesian subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Company Limited (MUL). The loan is cofinanced with a private financial institution, bringing the total cofinancing amount to about USD2,933 thousand.
The individual loan agreement signed under this credit line will secure funding from MULI in lease financing for the facilities required to conduct the manufacturing and sales business of automobile parts by PT. BOLTZ INDONESIA, an Indonesian subsidiary of BOLTZ Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Hyogo Prefecture).
In recent years, against the background of robust economic growth in Indonesia, Japanese companies have been accelerating their business expansion, with mid-tier enterprises and SMEs showing growing intentions to invest in the country. Accordingly, there is increasing interest in and need to utilize financing leases, as Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SMEs make capital investments. The loan under the credit line will provide long-term foreign currency funds flexibly for finance leases required by the business operations of mid-tier enterprises and SMEs conducted in Indonesia and other countries, and thus support the overseas business deployment of Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SMEs. Thereby, this will contribute to maintaining and strengthening the international competitiveness of Japanese industries.
As Japan's policy-based financial institution, JBIC will continue to support the overseas business deployment of Japanese mid-tier enterprises and SMEs, with a view to maintaining and strengthening the international competitiveness of Japanese industries.
