UAE. The United Arab Emirates’ central bank may exclude bonds from a limit imposed on banks’ lending to local governments and related entities, local Arabic language daily Al Khaleej reported, citing people it didn’t identify.

Lending mustn't exceed 100% of banks’ capital base to governments of the UAE federation and their non-commercial entities, and 25% to individual borrowers, the central bank said on April 4.

There was no limit under previous rules.
