TXF Development and Agency Finance

Apr 18, 2018
The City Tavern Club, Washington D.C., United States

Overview

Washington, D.C. has long been a hub for multilaterals, development finance institutions, and other international organisations. That is why TXF returned to D.C. on April 18, to examine the increased activity at these development and investment agencies.

This innovative one-day conference provided delegates with the chance to learn from industry experts, debate the changing nature of the market, and build on existing relationships. Our main aim was to help our guests identify where new business prospects can be found, and nurture new connections. There were plenty of opportunities for networking, in-depth discussion, collaboration, and frank analysis.

Who will be there?

TXF brought together MFIs, DFIs and ECAs, as well senior representatives from the commercial banking, legal, insurance, exporter, importer and project development sectors. If you want direct one-on-one access to top minds in development and agency finance, then this was a must-attend event.

Why attend?

- Heard about the latest development finance structures and tools and how they have been put to practical use
- Learned how multilaterals and development banks have successfully collaborated with each other and with the private sector
- Found out how agencies are responding to the challenges of climate change, local currency solutions, and legal difficulties
- Guests shared their own experiences with their peers in the multilateral and development finance space ahead of the US EXIM, IMF and World Bank meetings that were held later in the week
- Ended the day debating the development finance needs and challenges of different regions in our collaborative roundtable sessions

And much more!
