UAE. The central bank of the United Arab Emirates may extend the deadline for some banks to comply with rules curtailing their exposure to government-linked companies, Al-Khaleej newspaper reported, citing Chairman Khalil Foulathi.

Changes to the deadline will depend “on each bank, its exposure and the time remaining in the loans” given to local governments or government-related enterprises, Foulathi said, according to the newspaper. The Abu Dhabi-based central bank will not cancel or amend the rules, he said in the report.

Banks in the United Arab Emirates can lend no more than 100% of their capital to local governments and the same to government-related entities known as GREs, the central bank said April 4.

There was no limit under previous rules. Banks have until Sept. 30 to comply with the rules, the central bank said at the time.
