Emirates Global Aluminium secures $6.5 bln loan

Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) said on Thursday it had secured a $6.5 billion loan from a group of international and regional banks to refinance part of its debt.

EGA’s debt includes a $4.9 billion, seven-year loan agreed with banks in December 2015.
