For businesses, procuring innovative technologies can be challenging, yet vital for the success.
- You need to make an advance payment to import green economy technologies but lack affordable financing?
- Your business is experiencing cash flow constraints?
- You would like to minimise the risk of non-delivery or ensure the quality of delivered goods?
We have a solution for you:
Through its partner banks, EBRD’s Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) can provide financing tools tailored for the import and local distribution of green economy technologies.
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 Georgia by issuing guarantees to cover commercial and political payment risks in import transactions and local distribution.
How does it work?
If you are considering importing 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 trade finance instrument. The PFIs can assist you in minimising the risks associated with international trade and in optimising your payment conditions.
Furthermore, if imported technologies meet GEFF criteria, your clients (end-users of these technologies) may receive a GEFF loan. For more information on technology eligibility, please see the GEFF Green Technology Selector or contact the GEFF team.
