MANAMA: Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) Governor Rasheed Al Maraj said the $10 billion financial support package that the kingdom got last year from GCC allies is a long-term loan with zero interest rates and will not be a burden on the country during the period of implementation. He also said any decisions on going to the market to raise money through bonds will be made after the national budget for 2019-2020 is finalised and approved by parliament .
