Funds received by or payable to the Corporation in respect of an investment of the Corporation made in any member's territories pursuant to Section 1 of this Article shall not be free, solely by reason of any provision of this Agreement, from generally applicable foreign exchange restrictions, regulations and controls in force in the territories of that member.

    第五款 某些外汇管制规定的适用性

    (i)借入资金并因此提供它所决定的抵押或其他担保;但是在会员国市场公开出售公司债券前,公
    司应获得该会员国以及债券以其货币计价发行的会员国的批准;只要公司仍然身负来自银行或经银行
    担保获得的贷款,并且截止到当时公司承受的所有未偿还债务总额(包括所有的债务担保)高于公司
    未动用认购资本及盈余总额的四倍,那么公司承受的未偿还贷款或担保总金额不得再行提高;5

    第九款 禁止政治活动
