9 9 In order for investments to emerge as a result of the EU SBSR there is a need for:  Priority setting ► Political support (regulatory framework, legislative action, concessions, permitting, tariff setting etc)  Resource allocation  Clear project ownership and active participation by owners (public and/or private sector) From Strategy to Projects

10 Loans  A loan = Distributing the capital cost over time  Debt service must be covered with local resources Operating revenues and/or budgetary funds  Access to borrowing depends on: Creditworthiness and/or Project quality (profitability = capacity to generate money for debt service) Bankable projects 10

11 Security  Guarantees Sovereign, Regional, Local authorities Project owners  Mortgages and or pledges of property  Control over payment streams Bankable projects 11

12 Bankable projects -What is needed ? In order to lend banks need:  Willing and able borrowers Willing = Prepared to take loans at prevailing interest rates to finance part of their investments Able = Creditworthy enough to be able to service the loan/s and with the other part of the financing secured – banks never (should) provide loans for a 100 % of the project cost  Good quality (feasible) projects Financiers are focused on all aspects of project feasibility Economic Financial Technical Institutional Environmental Adequate studies are necessary – the BSAP Fund can help for Baltic Sea projects 12
