http://en.ria.ru of 12/7/2012 - Arab financial institutions are to grant the Uzbekistan government $480.9 million in loans between 2013 and 2017, the country's economic development and trade ministry said on Friday.

The Uzbekistan government has approved a list of 15 investment projects worth a total of $582.5 million to be funded via the Arab Coordination Group (ACG).
