Tourism, Retail & Property
The tourism, retail, and property sectors contribute to job creation, tax revenues, and economic growth for developing countries. IFC’s investments in tourism develop critical infrastructure, such as high-quality hotels. We work with our retail clients to create jobs, improve infrastructure, and raise labor standards, among other objectives. Through investments in property companies, we expand affordable housing and boost commercial real estate.
In FY19, our new long-term commitments in tourism, retail, and property totaled about $819 billion, including $297 million mobilized from other investors.
