Trade Finance Program (TFP)
In the Spotlight
How does ADB's Trade Finance Program work and what role does it play in boosting economic growth in Asia and the Pacific?
How ADB's Supply Chain Finance Program brings finance to small and medium enterprises.
ADB is supporting a portion of the facility through its Trade Finance Program (TFP) in the form of a guarantee.
ADB’s Supply Chain Finance Program and Deutsche Bank AG have agreed to enter into a supply chain finance transaction expected to provide over $200 million in annual financing to SMEs across developing Asia.
ADB's Trade Finance Program (TFP) fills market gaps for trade finance by providing guarantees and loans to banks to support trade.
Backed by its AAA credit rating, ADB’s TFP works with over 200 partner banks to provide companies with the financial support they need to engage in import and export activities in Asia’s most challenging markets. With dedicated trade finance specialists and a response time of 24 hours, the TFP has established itself as a key player in the international trade community, providing fast, reliable, and responsive trade finance support to fill market gaps.
A substantial portion of TFP’s portfolio supports small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and many transactions occur either intra-regionally or between ADB’s developing member countries. The program supports a wide range of transactions, from commodities and capital goods to medical supplies and consumer goods.
The TFP continues to grow, supporting billions of dollars of trade throughout the region, which in turn helps create sustainable jobs and economic growth in Asia’s developing countries.
