Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Spain’s banking crisis is hurting companies bidding for international contracts as foreign governments don’t accept guarantees by local lenders, Expansion reported, without citing anyone.

Even guarantees made by Banco Santander SA and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA weren’t enough for companies bidding for infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa, the newspaper said.

Some overseas administrations are forcing Spanish companies to use foreign banks’ guarantees to present bids for projects as they don’t trust the solvency of Spanish lenders, it said.
