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

DFC is committed to supporting investments across Europe and Central Asia, 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 Europe and Central Asia improve lives, create meaningful economic opportunities, and address critical development challenges, particularly energy security, by improving the availability, reliability, and affordability of energy and reducing reliance on foreign imports. DFC is also working to advance inclusive economic growth and employment as well as foster recovery in conflict-affected countries and support refugee populations in a sustainable manner.
