Detroit, Michigan – General Motors has begun loan repayments to the U.S., Canadian and Ontario governments, with an initial payment of US$1.0 billion to the U.S. Treasury, and $192 million to Export Development Canada.

“We are grateful for the support the governments have provided us,” said Ed Whitacre, chairman and CEO. “We look forward to continuing repayments through June 2010, at which time the balances will be paid in full, assuming no downturn in the economy or business.”
