Our Work

Regions

Africa and the Middle East

Africa and the Middle East are regions with significant need for investment to improve living standards, foster connectivity with the rest of the world, and pave the way to a more prosperous and stable future.

Latin America and the Caribbean

Latin America and the Caribbean are not only close neighbors, but also critical partners in promoting regional stability and security.

Indo-Pacific

The Indo-Pacific—a vast region that stretches from India to Southeast Asia and the South Pacific—is home to more than half the world’s population as well as multiple rapidly emerging economies in great need of investment.

Eastern Europe and Eurasia

Private sector investment has helped lay the groundwork for a more prosperous, stable future in Eastern Europe and Eurasia since the fall of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.

Sectors

Critical Infrastructure and Energy

Investments in critical infrastructure including roads, airports, seaports, and power plants promote trade and regional connectivity—creating jobs and fostering economic growth.

Technology

Trusted technologies enhance connectivity in the developing world; helping expand access to healthcare, education, and food, and making business more efficient and secure.

Healthcare

People in developing countries face many barriers to accessing hospitals, doctors, and basic medical services.

Financing for Small Businesses and Women Entrepreneurs

Limited access to financial services disproportionately impacts women and rural populations, restricting economic growth in emerging markets.

Education

Education is one of the most effective tools for increasing opportunity, strengthening communities, and helping families move out of poverty.
