While the state investment budget was determined as 10.45 billion YTL in 2005, the DS› investment budget was set at as 2.67 billion YTL (28.5%).

    • Another important source of finance in the DS› investment budget are foreign loans. Before 2003, foreign loans were not included in the DS› investment budget, but regarded rather as a supplement to this budget. Since a new regulation in 2003 imposed some restrictions on the availability of foreign loans, DS› has faced some financial difficulties in completion of some projects; therefore, DS› has suspended them with trace funds in the investment program.
    • In 2005, the DS› budget of 3.74 billion YTL constitutes 2.4% share in the state budget of 156.1 billion YTL. According to the average exchange rate of 1,6 YTL in 2005, the DS› budget accounts for US$ 2.32 billion, while the DS› investment budget is US$ 1.65 billion. F oreign loans constitute a 47% share, whereas the national budget sources comprise of 53% of the DS› investment budget.

     

    DSݒs Other Financing Sources

    • Since the share of the national budget in the DS› investment budget is limited (53%), it is imperative for DS› to find/use new foreign financing sources to materialize the projects in its investment program. The major loan sources of DS› or creditor institutions, with which DS› closely collaborates, are the World Bank (WB), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the European Council Development Bank (CEDB), the Kuwait Fund, the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), the Japanese Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), the French and German Loans, Bilateral Cooperation Loans on a turnkey basis (Eximbank Loan, Commercial Loans and Government Loans).
