Global Accreditation 1.0 CLE | May 04, 2020

In times of economic and financial crisis, commercial lending and private sector investment into emerging markets—even for projects or opportunities with sound economics and credit
fundamentals—often dry up. Development finance institutions and export credit agencies are often called upon to step into the breach. While aggregate investment declines, IFIs, in effect, see a larger piece of a smaller pie.

In these unprecedented times of global pandemic and meltdown of the world economies and markets, DFIs and ECAs are able to take a longer view beyond the immediate crisis and play a leading role in getting emerging markets back on track.

Join us to hear from senior representatives of leading IFIs what their institutions are doing to tackle the crisis.
