The United Arab Emirates extends its economic support program launched in response to the coronavirus pandemic until the middle of next year, the Gulf state’s central bank said.

Financial institutions will continue to be able to tap a collateralized Dh 50bn ($13.6bn) zero-cost liquidity facility until June 30 next year, according to a statement. Banks can draw on the facility to provide new loans and financing to individuals, small and medium-sized enterprises, and other private corporates affected by the virus fallout.
