As the majority of borrowings are denominated in national currency, the difference between two year-ends reflects on the one hand changes in the valuation of existing stock due to exchange rates fluctuations and on the other the net volume of borrowings during the year. Original amount of borrowings, plus or minus repayments of the principal, cancellations, annulments and exchange-rate adjustments. |

2.3.3 RISK-SHARING

a) 1st Mandate

1 st Mandate: (Council Decision covering period 31.01.1997 to 31.01.2000)

No further loans were signed under the 1st Mandate in 2004 so the levels of risk-sharing achieved under the 1st Mandate have not changed. In terms of percentage of risk sharing compared to the total ceiling, these levels were 81% for ALA, 26% for CEEC and 3% for the Mediterranean.

Monetary amounts in EUR million |

Mandate Ceilings 1st Mandate | Total amounts of loans signed at 31.12.2004 | No. of loans signed with risk-sharing | Amount of loans signed with risk-sharing | Percentage of risk-sharing achieved (relative to mandate ceiling) | Percentage of risk-sharing achieved (relative to loan signature) |

b) 2nd Mandate

2 nd Mandate: (Council Decision covering period 1.02.2000 to 31.01.2007)

The cumulative total for risk-sharing projects since the start of lending activity in the framework of the Council Decisions relative to the period starting 1st February 2000, was EUR 2,412 million at the end of 2004, i.e. 12.4% of the overall lending ceiling and 17.7% of lending to date.

In South-Eastern Neighbours, EIB lending based on risk sharing reached a total of EUR 655 million, or 7% of the lending ceiling for those countries and 15% of lending in the region to date.

In the Mediterranean region, two loans were signed under the risk-sharing arrangement in 2004, bringing the total to EUR 400 million, representing around 6% of the mandate ceiling and 6% of total amounts signed. As expected, projects are often signed with governments or public bodies (in accordance with the programming procedures inherent in the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership) , and thus the risk-sharing total for the Mediterranean countries still remains relatively low.

In Asia and Latin America (ALA), risk sharing in respect of EIB lending reached a total of EUR 1 327 million representing 53% of the mandate ceiling and 78% of lending in the region to date.
