Telecommunications, Media & Technology
Modern information and communication technologies make it easier for the poor to obtain access to services and resources. They expand opportunity and make markets and institutions more efficient. IFC works to extend the availability of such technologies. We channel investments toward private companies that build modern communications infrastructure and information-technology businesses, and develop climate-smart technologies.
IFC increasingly helps clients move beyond their own national borders and into other developing markets. In FY13, our new commitments in this sector totaled about $470 million.
