America’s Global Infrastructure Opportunity: Three Recommendations to the New U.S. Development Finance Corporation

May 16, 2019 • 1:30 – 3:00 pm EDT

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Energy for Growth Hub, two independent organizations that have closely supported the creation of the USDFC, convened the Working Group on U.S. Development Finance for Infrastructure to consider the context and emerging opportunities and provide focused recommendations for the new USDFC to live up to its potential. The questions we asked included: What are the major global and market trends affecting the USDFC’s ecosystem? Where are the potential opportunities the greatest? How can the USDFC do more, in volume and quality, than OPIC in filling the infrastructure gaps to unleash the potential of the private sector and to create jobs? Here is a link to the CSIS brief that resulted from these conversations:

On May 16, CSIS and the Energy for Growth Hub will host a public event with the co-chairs of the working group to discuss the recommendations in the report. 

This event is made possible by the generous support of Chevron.
