Regulators at the central bank have exempted petroleum suppliers from the freeze on collateralised loans imposed in August 2021. The exemption comes following an appeal from the Ethiopian Petroleum Supply Enterprise, which notified central bank officials that the freeze is impacting the country's oil supply. Petroleum dealers are not part of the exemption, but suppliers including NOC, Oil Libya and TotalEnergies will benefit. The suppliers are the latest to receive relief from the freeze. The central bank has allowed players in the coffee and sesame industries, buyer of banks' foreclosed properties, and bank employees to resume taking collateralised loans since it imposed the freeze.
