The new borrowing agreement with Canada and the amendments to the borrowing agreements with The Netherlands and Korea will each provide new resources of SDR 500 million to the General Loan Account of the PRGT, for a total amount of SDR 1.5 billion in new PRGT lending resources. Except for the increase in amount for drawings, all other elements of the borrowing agreements with The Netherlands and Korea remain unchanged.
