Singapore: Yantai Raffles Shipyard has signed a committed three year term loan facility with China Development Bank Corporation aimed primarily to retire more costly, existing bank debt and to establish working capital.

Mai Bo Liang, Chairman of Yantai Raffles’ Board said “Two of the priority objectives of the Company’s current Finance strategy are to establish and build upon key banking relationships in China, and to replace short-term bank lines with committed, longer term, competitively-priced funding arrangements.
