Kazakhstan will borrow $125 million from the Asian Development Bank to repair Shymkent-Tashkent section of the Western Europe-Western China international transit corridor, Tengrinews reports from the plenary meeting of the Kazakhstan Mailis (lower chamber of the Parliament).

“The length of the section financed by the Asian Development Bank is 37 kilometers. This Loan Agreement was signed on May 28, 2013 for the total amount of $125 million. The interest rate is LIBOR+0,4 percent, and there is a 3-year grace period. The loan is issued for 16 years,” Kazakhstan Minister of Transport and Communications Askar Zhumagaliyev said presenting the draft law On ratification of the Loan Agreement (Common Operations) for the project of reconstruction of Corridor 3 access road to Western Europe-Western China international transit corridor between Kazakhstan and the Asian Development Bank.

The Majilis has approved the draft law.
