OPERATING PRINCIPLES
Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, the operations of the Bank
shall be conducted in-accordance with the following principles:
(a) The operations of the Bank shall provide principally for the
financing of specific projects, including those forming part of
a national, sub-regional or regional development programme. They
may, however, include loans to, or guarantees of loans made to,
national development banks or other suitable financial institu-
tions, in order that the latter may finance development projects
on terms approved by the Bank where the individual financing
requirements of such projects are not, in the opinion of the Bank,
large enough to warrant the direct supervision of the Bank.
(b) The Bank shall not finance any undertaking in the territory of
a member if that member objects to such financing.
(c) Before a loan or guarantee is granted, the applicant shall have
submitted an adequate loan or guarantee proposal and the Presi-
dent of the Bank shall have presented to the Board of Directors
a written report regarding the proposal together with his recom-
mendations on the basis of a staff study.
(d) In considering an application for a loan or guarantee, the Bank
shall pay due regard to the ability of the borrower to obtain
financing elsewhere on terms and conditions that the Bank con-
siders reasonable for the recipient.
(e) In making or guaranteeing a loan, the Bank shall pay due regard
to the prospects that the borrower and its guarantor, if any, will
be in a position to meet their obligations under the loan contract.
(f) In making or guaranteeing a loan, the rate of interest, other
charges and the schedule for repayment of principal shall be
such as are, in the opinion of the Bank, appropriate for the loan
concerned.
(g) In guaranteeing a loan made by other investors, or in under-
writing the sale of securities, the Bank shall receive suitable
compensation for its risk.
(h) The proceeds of financing in the ordinary operations of the
Bank shall normally be used only for procurement, in territories
of members, of goods and services produced in those territories.
In special cases the Board of Directors may, however, determine
the circumstances in which the procurement of goods and services
may be permitted elsewhere, giving particular consideration










No. 14. Caribbean Development Bank. 1969.


wherever practicable to procurement of goods and services pro-
duced in the territory of countries which have contributed sub-
stantially to the resources of the Bank.
(i) In procuring services, and in facilitating financing for entities or
enterprises in the private sector, the Bank shall pay due regard
to the need to develop and strengthen undertakings, entities and
skills of individuals belonging to the region.
(j) In the case of a direct loan made by the Bank, the borrower shall
be permitted by the Bank to draw its funds only to meet expendi-
tures in connection with the project as they are actually incurred.
(k) The Bank shall take the necessary measures to ensure that the
proceeds of any loan made, guaranteed, or participated in by the
Bank are used only for the purposes for which the loan was
granted and with due regard to considerations of economy and
efficiency.
(1) The Bank shall pay due regard to the desirability of a reasonable
distribution of the benefits from its operations among the mem-
bers in the region.
(m) The Bank shall seek to maintain reasonable diversification in its
investments in the equity capital.
(n) The Bank may provide financing to meet either external or local
expenditures in respect of a project being assisted, provided that
in its ordinary operations the Bank shall provide financing for
local expenditures in the territory in which the project is located
only in exceptional circumstances and not exceeding a reasonable
proportion of the total of such expenditures, or in circumstances
where such financing may be provided with local currency re-
stricted under paragraph 2 of Article 23.
(o) The Bank shall be guided by sound development banking prin-
ciples in its operations.


ARTICLE 16

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR DIRECT LOANS AND GUARANTEES

1. In the case of direct loans made or participated in or loans guaranteed
by the Bank, the contract shall establish the terms and conditions for the loan
or guarantee concerned, including those relating to payment of principal, in-
terest and other charges, maturities, and dates of payment in respect of the
loan, or the fees and other charges in respect of the guarantee, respec'lively.











No. 14. Caribbean Development Bank. 1969.


2. Subject in the case of special operations to any rules and regulations
or other arrangements relating thereto, the contract relating to a loan made or
guaranteed by the Bank shall specify the currency or currencies to be used
in making repayments to the Bank, or stipulate that repayments shall be made
in the currency or currencies loaned, or make other appropriate provision for
the currency or currencies of repayment. At the option of the borrower, how-
ever, such repayments may be made in gold or, subject to the agreement of the
Bank, in any convertible currency. The contract may also provide that the
amount of repayments to the Bank shall be equivalent, in terms of a currency
specified for that purpose by the Bank, to the value of those repayments on
on the date or dates on which the loan was disbursed.

3. Where the recipient of a loan or guarantee of a loan is not itself a mem-
ber, the Bank may, when it deems it advisable, make it a condition of the

carried out, or a public agency of that member acceptable to the Bank, guar-
antee the repayment of the principal and the payment of interest and other
charges on the loan in accordance with the terms thereof.

at the rate of not less than one (1) per cent per annum in the first five (5) years
of the operations of the Bank. At the end of this period, the rate of commis-
sion may be set at such level as the Bank considers appropriate in the light of
the level of the reserves of the Bank.

2. In guaranteeing a loan as part of its ordinary operations, the Bank
shall, in addition to any other charges, require a guarantee fee, at a rate deter-
mined by the Board of Directors, payable periodically on the amount of the
loan outstanding.

3. Other charges of the Bank in its ordinary operations, and any com-
mission, fees or other charges in its special operations, shall be determined by

that whenever it is in the interest of the Bank the special reserve may be in-
vested in the securities of the region.

its territories, that member shall pay to the Bank within a reasonable time an
additional amount of its currency sufficient to maintain the value as of the time
of subscription of the amount of such currency which is held or subsequently
received by the Bank (whether or not any such currency is held in the form of
notes or other obligations issued pursuant to paragraph 5 of Article 7) and con-
sisting of, or derived as repayments of principal from, currency originally paid

or guarantor as a corollary of the obligation of either to make increased pay-
ments to the Bank in case of a decrease in the par value of such currency.

deemed inoperative by the Bank when a uniform change in the par values of
the currencies of all its members is made by the Internatoinal Monetary Fund.

1 of this Article to maintain the value of any of its currency shall be useable
and convertible to the same extent as the original currency in respect of which

established with the International Monetary Fund, the initial value of such
currency in terms of dollars shall be as determined by the Bank pursuant to
paragraph 3 of Article 7, or otherwise, for purposes of payments by such
member on account of its subscription. The Bank may, from time to time
thereafter, make a similar determination with respect to the value in terms
