This is stated in a press release issued by the EBRD, which is available to Ukrinform.
"The EBRD supports the activities of one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of equipment for retail stores and warehousing facilities in Central and Eastern Europe, giving it a 7-year loan worth $15 million," reads the report.
Loan funds will be used to increase production volumes on two main production sites in Lutsk (Ukraine) and Vitebsk (Belarus). The company will also be able to restructure its balance sheet.
Modern-Expo is a private company that has been working in Ukraine for over 20 years. It started its activities in Belarus in 2014.
