India’s development cooperation with Bangladesh: a focus on Lines of Credit

This study report developed jointly by Oxfam India and Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) discusses the Lines of Credit (LoCs) from India to Bangladesh. Lines of Credit have emerged as a preferred instrument for development cooperation with its neighbours by India because it provides a double-sided guarantee both from the borrower country as well as from India’s Export-Import Bank (EXIM Bank). The study report assesses the effectiveness of using LoCs for development cooperation. Based on the study, the report offers recommendations for future policy and practice.
