Therefore, the representatives of the Paris Club Creditor Countries have accepted to provide to the Republic of Madagascar a time-bound suspension of debt service due from 1st May to 31st December 2020.

The Government of the Republic of Madagascar is committed to devote the resources freed by this initiative to increase spending in order to mitigate the health, economic and social impact of the COVID19-crisis. The Government of the Republic of Madagascar is also committed to seek from all its other bilateral official creditors a debt service treatment that is in line with the agreed term sheet.

This initiative will also contribute to help the Republic of Madagascar to improve debt transparency and debt management.

Paris Club creditors will continue to closely coordinate with other stakeholders in the implementation phase of this initiative, in particular when considering a possible extension of the suspension period.
