Portugal to extend loan moratorium

Portugal will extend its six-month suspension on debt repayments beyond September for as long as it takes to avoid jeopardising the banking system with a jump in bad loans when the measure is lifted.

The suspension, in place since March, can be applied for on bank loans to companies and individuals, including on household mortgages.

Originally due to expire in September, the scheme has already led to the postponement of 12 billion euros in interest and capital payments.
