WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The International Develop-
ment Association (IDA), a
World Bank affiliate, made
its first loan to Egypt for its
industrial development.
IDA announced a credit of
$15,000,000 to the Egyptian
government for the use by
the Bank of Alexandria, one
of the country's large com-
mercial banks, to help cover
its industrial financing.
"Industry is the leading
growth sector of Egypt but
it has been hampered by the
scarcity of imported equip-
ment and goods," IDA said
in a statement.
The credit is for 50 years
and is free of interest. While
the Egyptian government
will pay IDA three-fourths
of one per cent as a service
charge to cover IDA's ad-
ministrative expenses, it will
relend the money to the bank
at seven per cent per annum.
The bank will relend the pro-
ceeds to sub-borrowers at
nine and one-half per cent,
excluding normal banking
charges, IDA reported.

Most things are fixed, but
few know who was in on
the fix.
