IFC's Priorities in EAP Region

IFC supports sustainable, private sector-led development to ensure that economic growth reaches all segments of society.

We provide risk capital for financial institutions and businesses at an early stage. As shareholders, we set standards in corporate governance, financial transparency, and environmental and social best practices, particularly in China, Indonesia, Mongolia, and Vietnam.

IFC helps improve energy efficiency and expand the use of renewable energy so that companies can grow sustainably. We launched green-building programs in Indonesia and Vietnam, and operate the China Utility-Based Energy Efficiency Finance Program (CHUEE) to fund projects in China.

We invest in less-developed countries such as Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Mongolia, and in poorer areas of middle-income markets. As these regions develop, we expand access to finance and provide advice to rural and urban enterprises.

With IFC’s global expertise in emerging markets, we help larger companies in China, Indonesia, and elsewhere expand outside of East Asia and the Pacific in environmentally and socially sustainable ways.
