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.

DFC is committed to supporting investments across Eastern Europe and Eurasia, from Ukraine and Moldova to the Balkan states and countries bordering the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black Seas. This region needs additional private sector investment to build infrastructure, modernize industry, and lay a strong foundation for continued growth.

DFC’s investments in Eastern Europe and Eurasia serve as a stabilizing force in the region, support U.S. foreign policy and national security interests. These investments are also improving lives, creating meaningful economic opportunities, and addressing critical development challenges, particularly energy security, by improving the availability, reliability, and affordability of energy and reducing reliance on foreign imports.

DFC is supporting Eastern Europe with up to $1 billion in energy investments through the Three Seas Initiative, announced by U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo in February 2020.
