Development Finance Institutions in a Changing Global Economy
Please join us for public panel discussion of Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in a changing global economy.
DFIs are coming of age. CSIS in partnership with the association of European Development Finance Institutions (EDFI) wrote a report last fall on the evolving role of DFIs. DFIs have had to adjust to a dynamic and changing economy. As EDFI celebrates their 25th anniversary, it is important to look at events over the past year that have influenced the development finance environment. The global economy has changed drastically and DFIs are needed now more than ever. EDFI’s total portfolio has expanded to represent close to $50 billion, becoming a major player in emerging markets. This discussion will address the challenges and opportunities in the short and long-term in emerging markets.
