The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is the main source of multilateral financing for regional development in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). It provides loans, grants, guarantees, policy advice and technical assistance to the public and private sectors of its borrowing member countries.
The Trade and Investment Division (TIN) of the Integration and Trade Sector (INT) of the Vice-Presidency for Namely Sectors (VPS) supports the integration of LAC into the global economy and regional integration and cooperation through lending operations, technical and applied economic assistance and the work of the sector. In particular, key priority areas include export promotion, investment attraction and improving the business climate; trade facilitation, trade logistics and customs; and trade and investment agreement implementation (six sectors). Also, INT/TIN provides services through an online platform that aims to promote the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises forums (Connectamericas.com) on the basis of trade exchanges and investment promotion.
Aligned with these efforts, TIN supports the implementation of the IDB's program, including support for private sector development. One of the key projects in the implementation of the private sector strategy is support for private sector development through investment promotion (HA-L1133).
