East Asia & the Pacific

IFC in East Asia and the Pacific

  • FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE

    By supporting energy efficiency and investing in renewable energy sources.

  • SUPPORTING GLOBAL INTEGRATION

    By helping companies grow in environmentally and socially sustainable ways.

  • DEVELOPING FRONTIER REGIONS

    We invest in less-developed countries and poor areas of middle-income markets.

 

Economic growth in East Asia and the Pacific has lifted millions out of poverty over the past decades. Yet income inequality remains a challenge. Supporting inclusive growth is one of IFC’s priorities in the region—where our long-term investments totaled $3.3 billion in fiscal year 2015, including $1.1 billion in funds mobilized from other investors.

We invest in projects across sectors such as agribusiness and infrastructure, and work with financial institutions to expand the reach of our work. We provide advice to companies and governments on key areas of private sector development, including access to finance, corporate governance, trade and competitiveness, and public-private partnerships.
