DFC release

WASHINGTON – A U.S. government delegation led by U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) Chief Executive Officer Adam Boehler visited Suriname, Guyana, Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic this week to advance growth, private sector investment, and economic security.

Boehler was joined by U.S. Department of Treasury Assistant Secretary for International Markets Mitchell A. Silk and other senior officials from the Department of State, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Export Import Bank, and National Security Council.

In Suriname, Boehler met with President Chandrikapersad Santokhi to discuss opportunities to utilize DFC tools to support economic growth and COVID-19 recovery in the country.

While in Guyana, the delegation held meetings with local business leaders to discuss next steps on a recently signed América Crece: Growth in the Americas Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the U.S. and Guyana.

In Jamaica, the delegation met with Prime Minister Andrew Holness highlighting investment opportunities in the telecommunications, water, and energy sectors and economic security in the region.

The delegation also joined Haiti private sector representatives to discuss means to support poverty reduction and economic growth through sustainable development.

Boehler joined President Luis Abinader in the Dominican Republic to sign a MOU between the two countries seeking to collaborate to mobilize investments in tourism, energy, and other infrastructure projects that will strengthen key industries, create jobs, and bolster the local economy. The MOU advances the América Crece program, a whole of U.S. Government initiative to promote growth throughout Latin America and the Caribbean by mobilizing investments in energy and infrastructure.

DFC’s current portfolio in the Caribbean includes more than $489 million invested across projects ranging from small business lending, power generation, agriculture, and low-income mortgage lending.
