47912-012: Capacity Development for Developing Member Country Banks under the Trade Finance Program

Project Data Sheet (PDS): Overview


The proposed R-CDTA will build on the ongoing work under R-CDTA 7264 and 8323, whose implementation started in 2009 and 2013 respectively. The consultants engaged under the two R-CDTAs have successfully conducted bank assessments on over 100 DMC banks. Also under R-CDTA 7264 and 8323, knowledge sharing seminars were conducted in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Mongolia, Nepal, Uzbekistan, Myanmar, and Tajikistan. The proposed R-CDTA will continue to benefit the DMC banks in ADB's Trade Finance Program (TFP) in the form of ongoing monitoring and knowledge sharing; it will also benefit new banks and promote partnership development when TFP expands into new markets in 2014 and beyond.
