Telecoms, Media & Technology Priorities
IFC's Priorities in Telecoms, Media, and Technology
We work to extend the availability of technologies that help promote sustainable growth and social inclusion.
IFC’s long-term commitments in telecommunications and information technology totaled $541 million for our own account in the fiscal year ended in June 2016. Our clients ranged from tech start-up firms to global mobile operators.
As one of the leading development financiers in the sector, we focus on facilitating better broadband connectivity, supporting infrastructure sharing models, and partnering with mobile operators as they expand their networks to new areas, especially in fragile and frontier markets.
