Dubai agreed a $3 billion loan with banks to fund the expansion of Dubai World Central airport and logistics hub as it prepares to host the World Expo in 2020, people familiar with the matter said. The emirate will pay interest of 200 basis points, or 2 percentage points, above the London Interbank Offered Rate on the seven-year facility, said the people, asking not to be identified because the talks are private. Banks had been seeking higher pricing on the loan and wanted the government to pay a margin of 220 basis points over the benchmark rate, compared with its proposal of 180 basis points plus 14 basis points in fees, people said in December.
