Turkish, Qatari central banks amend swap deal limit


The swap deal limit between the central banks of Turkey and Qatar has been amended to $15 billion equivalent of the Turkish lira and Qatari riyal.

According to a statement from the Turkish Central Bank (CBRT) on May 20, the move aims to facilitate bilateral trade in respective local currencies and to support the financial stability of the two countries.

The first deal worth $3 billion was signed in August 2018 and then raised to $5 billion in November 2019.

Previously, Turkish Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak said the country has been conducting talks to establish swap lines with members of G20, with more than one swap line possible.
