Exim Bank of China has signed debt suspension agreements with 11 African countries as Beijing committed to fully taking part in the Group of 20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI).

China’s foreign ministry said other non-official creditors had also reached consensus on debt relief with some African countries regarding the DSSI.

The Group of 20 wealthy nations, including Japan, the United States and Britain, have accused China of not fully taking part in the DSSI, and therefore failing to help African countries cut their debt burden.

However, China was “actively responding to African concerns in accordance with the consensus reached by Chinese and African leaders and the G20 DSSI”, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Monday.

Zhao said China would also waive interest-free loans due to mature by the end of 2020 for 15 African countries and would continue to push the international community, especially the G20, to further extend the duration of debt suspension.

China did not reveal which countries had benefited from Beijing’s debt relief or whose interest-free loans had been waived. But several countries, such as Zambia, Angola, Ethiopia, the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville), Djibouti, Mozambique and Kenya, are reportedly negotiating to have their Chinese loans restructured.

Beijing recently revealed that Exim Bank of China played an active part in Angola’s application for emergency financial aid from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Other non-official Chinese creditors are in talks with Angola about reaching basic consensus on a debt restructuring plan.

Last week, the Chinese ambassador to Botswana, Zhao Yanbo, signed a protocol on the exemption of interest-free loan debt with the country’s minister of finance, Thapelo Matsheka.
