Regional: CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT FOR THE SUPPLY CHAIN FINANCE PROGRAM

Nonsovereign Project | 47936-012

The proposed technical assistance (TA) will help TSCFP reduce market gaps for trade finance. The TA will fund the engagement of consultants (i) for business operations and administration to manage growing volumes, thereby complementing existing staff resources, and (ii) for various capacity building initiatives such as enhanced sustainability/safeguards, integrity due diligence, and gender policies. To further close gaps, promote regional cooperation and integration and as a tool to address the pandemic, the TA will also fund delivery of knowledge products, services, and solutions.

Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy SCF is linked to the ADB Financial Sector Operational Plan, to various strategies and business opportunities presented in country partnership strategies, regional cooperation strategies (i.e., Greater Mekong Subregion and South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation), and country operations business plans. A review of these documents underscores the importance of trade finance capacity development in DMCs to enable ADB to meet its development objectives.
