Introduction
Introduction…

  • Although it has supported specialized trade organizations such as Afreximbank and ATI, traditionally the AfDB has focused on long-term project and corporate finance.

  • However, the global financial crisis has convinced the Bank’s Board to consider a Trade Finance Initiative of up to USD 1 billion from the AfDB’s resources.

  • The TFI is organized into 2 phases:

    • Short-term initiatives (Trade Finance Lines of Credit)

    • Medium-term initiatives (Partnership Programs)

In conclusion
In conclusion... leverage its resources

  • Although trade has not been a focal area for the AfDB, the magnitude of the crisis has compelled the Bank to respond.

  • The AfDB will now offer funded short-term revolving lines of credit for trade finance to creditworthy banks. Up to USD 500 million has been allocated for this product.

  • The AFDB is keen to leverage the trade finance programs of partner institutions. We are working towards a contribution of USD 500 million for the GTLP and will consider programs of other partners to increase reach and scale.
