Temporary Bridging Loan Programme

The Temporary Bridging Loan Programme is a government assisted financing scheme introduced in Budget 2020. This financing scheme is now eligible to all sectors (previously only applicable to tourism industry) after the Solidarity Budget enhancements.

About $1.7 billion drawn from past reserves will be used to finance several enhanced schemes to provide businesses with access to credit amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Temporary Bridging Loan Programme and the Enhanced Enterprise Financing Scheme – Trade Loan  will be extended with revised parameters for another six months – from April 1 to Sept 30, 2022. They were previously extended in October 2011 last year to March 31, 2022

Interested enterprises can apply through Bizsquare.
