What is the TFP?
The TFP was established by the EBRD in 1999, to promote and facilitate international trade. Under this programme the EBRD supports banks in Egypt by issuing guarantees to cover commercial and political payment risks in import transactions and local distribution.
How does it work?
If you are considering the import of green economy technologies and negotiating a supply/purchase agreement, please get in touch with one or several of our participating financial institutions (PFIs). Depending on your business needs you could be offered either a loan or a trade finance instruments. The PFIs can assist you in minimising the risks associated with international trade and in optimising the payment terms.
Furthermore, if imported technologies meet GEFF criteria, your clients (end-users of technologies) may receive a GEFF loan and investment incentive of up to 15%, depending on the project and the sector. For more information on technology eligibility please see the GEFF Technology Selector or contact GEFF team.
