Our focus is on supporting competitiveness, market and regional integration and economic diversification, strengthening financial sector, mitigating demographic challenges and climate change.

Over fiscal year 2018, IFC invested $2.9 billion, including more than $650 million in mobilized funds, in 45 projects in Europe and Central Asia.

IFC’s clients in the region supported more than 389,000 jobs and provided assistance to more than 40,000 farmers. They also provided health care to more than 4.6 million people, generated power for more than 3.1 million people, and educated more than 16,000 students.

Advisory work plays an important role in IFC's involvement in the region. We work with investment partners to build reliable supply and distribution chains through customized advice on better production and management practices to local suppliers and distributors. IFC also helps local companies improve their corporate governance, and environmental and social practices. We also collaborated with World Bank Group partners to deliver strong advisory work on investment climate, financial markets, and other crucial areas.
