ADFIAP expands development finance news reach via CDFA partnership

ADFIAP’s partnership with the Columbus, Ohio-based Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) has resulted in the launch of a new monthly enewsletter called the “CDFA-ADFIAP International Development Update” which features international development finance news from the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific region that reaches to over 27,000 recipients worldwide.

This new publication is part of the CDFA-ADFIAP cooperation to create a “U.S.-Asia Pacific Development Finance Exchange” (US-AsPac DevFinEx), a partnership dedicated to developing a transpacific exchange between development finance practitioners in both the U.S. and Asia-Pacific to help foster best practices, collaboration, learning and a greater understanding of how economic development and infrastructure are financed in the two jurisdictions.

The partnership will also bring leaders in the U.S. and Asia-Pacific together through education, resource development, research and networking. It will offer live webcasts, online resources, live events and a dedicated partnership newsletter. Topics areas will focus primarily on financing tools used to support development in both the U.S. and Asia-Pacific, including bonds, tax increment finance, tax credits, revolving loan funds, capital access, energy finance, seed and venture capital, public-private partnerships, grants, federal/national financing and other topics deemed appropriate.

CDFA is a U.S. association comprising the nation’s leading and most knowledgeable members of the development finance community representing over 330 public, private and non-profit development entities that provide or support economic development financing programs.
