Almost every country in the world, while doing economic transformations, resorts to external sources of financing. Rational approach to foreign loans, credits and other types of help contributes into acceleration of economic development and solving social-economic problems. However the absence of complete integrated government policy in attracting and using external financial sources leads to formation of external debt which becomes a large barrier heading toward to economic transformations.

It played its role in financing government deficits. Another important moments in governmental policy is providing other countries with loans and securities.
