A non-DAC donor case study: India’s lines of credit programme

This policy brief examines the role of lines of credit (LOCs) as a component of India’s development cooperation programme. As a tool for promoting international trade, it is used not only to enhance market diversification but also as an effective market entry mechanism for small and medium Indian enterprises.
