The market continued to pose challenges to commercial lending portfolio as strong competition from commercial banks kept the lending rates low. Total interest income earned in the year was $18.5 million compared with $17.7million last year. The commercial lending portfolio increased from $387 million to $489.5 million which apart from new loans was also a result of impairment provision write backs of about $13.6 million.
New loans during the year included Momi Bay Resort Limited for the construction of the Marriott Hotel, FNPF Hotel Resorts Limited on the refurbishment of the Holiday Inn, completion of drawdowns by FEA for the purchase of 35 MW Heavy Fuel Oil Generators and the refinancing of a FEA Bond and Fiji Airways Limited for financing the purchase of two ATR aircrafts.
