The Dubai government has set up a $6.5 billion debt borrowing program to raise funds, two bankers told Reuters on Sunday. The program includes a $4 billion Euro Medium Term Note program for
“infrastructure, financing and general budgetary purposes,” and a $2.5 billion Islamic bond, according to reports. The Dubai government and its government-related entities are expected to have total debts of around $80 billion.
The meetings are being arranged by Dubai Islamic Bank, Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International, Standard Chartered and UBS.
