JBIC provides short-term financing for governments of developing countries to meet their foreign currency needs for external transactions when they face balance-of-payment difficulties.

JBIC provided bridge loans (short-term bridging loans) for Myanmar in January 2013 to support clear the arrears of past loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the International Development Association (IDA), a member of the World Bank Group. JBIC can also provide credits, in addition to providing loans and guarantees, by purchasing loan assets and acquiring public and corporate bonds* issued by borrowers for funding. The objective of such operations is to promote private financial institutions’ loans in international finance and Japanese companies’ funding in international capital markets.
