Finance agencies in countries belonging to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) provide an important stimulus to economic development. The services of these agencies are valuable to businesses in OECD nations wishing to penetrate overseas markets, to businesses in developing nations seeking capital, and to governments in developing countries. This book surveys and compares 11 such agencies. Because these agencies operate under their own separate mandates, they differ in many of their objectives and in how they provide development finance. However, these agencies also share many goals and practices and, viewed together, offer an impressive array of resources. By comparing the specific characteristics of the agencies, the book is a valuable tool for companies seeking investment assistance as well as governments hoping to attract foreign investment.
