BGK’s role

BGK acts as the Fund’s operator, which means:

  • compiling and updating annual financial plan of AF, which is agreed with the Minister of Finance and approved by the Prime Minister, and makes a framework for effecting payments from the AF
  • administering the accounts of the Fund, distribution of funds to accounts within the AF dedicated to the tasks defined in the financial plan and to administrators of the budget sections authorized by the Prime Minister
  • servicing proceeds/payments made from AF’s resources
  • managing financial liquidity of the Fund, bond issuance
  • servicing debt incurred for the AF
  • reporting to the Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister on execution of the AF’s financial plan

The Act under which the Aid Fund was established does not specify the time frame of its functioning, however it will surely depend on the duration of ongoing crisis.
