Making Washington Work For You
By virtue of the concentration of resources and policy development, Washington is the worldwide capital for the development of emerging markets. The city hosts the headquarters of the World Bank Group, which includes the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), The International Development Organization (IDA), International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Washington is also home to the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), as well as representative offices of all major multilateral organizations, such as the Asian Development Bank, the African Development Bank and others. Moreover, virtually all the U.S. Government trade finance and support organizations are based in Washington, including the U.S. Export-Import Bank (EXIMBANK), the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA), The U.S. Agency for International Development (AID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and others. Washington also plays host to specialized equity and finance groups which literally capitalize on the policies, guarantees and funding flows which these larger organizations extend.
Washington is also the unique meeting place of business organizations, state economic and commercial agencies, bilateral chambers of commerce, trade and business associations and educational institutions, to work together to provide resources and business opportunities for international partnerships.
