• Supercharging the Development Finance Corporation: Opportunities and Pathways for Development, Infrastructure, and Investment

    Serving as America’s development finance institution, the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) was established in 2019 to ramp up financing, equity investment, and partnerships to support U.S. foreign policy and development-aligned transactions in emerging markets. DFC bolsters U.S. national and economic security, enabling the United States to work with key partners and allies to define a new vision of public-private development financing, centered around transparency, financial sustainability, and economic resilience, while reinforcing high standards for protecting human rights and the environment.

    FDD’s Center on Economic and Financial Power (CEFP) hosts Nisha Biswal, Deputy CEO of the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, for a wide ranging conversation with Senior Director and Head of CEFP Elaine Dezenski. They will discuss critical areas for future DFC investment; evolving economic conditions across the global south; how the United States thinks about countering investments by adversarial regimes, including the Chinese Communist Party; and opportunities for greater collaboration with allies and partners. Ambassador John A. Simon, former ambassador to the African Union, and founder and Managing Partner of Total Impact Capital, will provide introductory remarks for the conversation.
