Industrial-nations group will bolster IMF loan fund

Finance ministers of the Group of 10 leading industrial nations and Switzerland Tuesday agreed to boost the lending resources that the International Monetary Fund can draw on to relieve the financial problems of third-world countries.

In a meeting here, they agreed to nearly treble their internal-lending facility, the General Arrangements to Borrow, effective 1984, official sources said. The facility will be increased to 17 billion special drawing rights ($18.7 billion) from the present 6 billion SDRs ($6.6 billion).
