About the Trade Finance Program

ADB's Trade Finance Program fills market gaps for trade finance by providing guarantees and loans to banks to support trade. This fact sheet presents the highlights of the program for 2017.

Backed by its AAA credit rating, ADB’s TFP works with over 240 partner banks to provide companies with the financial support they need to engage in import and export activities in Asia’s most challenging markets. The program supports a wide range of transactions, from commodities and capital goods to medical supplies and consumer goods.

In 2017, the program supported $4.48 billion in transactions, $2.81 billion in cofinancing, and supported 2,822 small and medium-sized enterprises. As of 2017, the program is partnered with over 240 banks. The six most active TFP countries are Armenia, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Viet Nam.
