East Asia and the Pacific has made significant progress against poverty over the past few decades. Yet millions still struggle on less than $2 a day.
IFC supports inclusive and green growth in the region while deepening capital-market development and promoting cross-border investment.

Our clients provided employment for more than 554,000 people, provided health care for over 143,000 patients, and generated power for 4.2 million people in the region.
