Through private-sector investments, IFU promotes job creation and economic activity in developing countries.
An important tool in generating economic and social advancement in developing countries is foreign direct investment (FDI). A case in point is China, where numerous foreign enterprises have contributed to generating strong economic activity, creating millions of new jobs and fostering an explosive Chinese export boom.
IFU's objective is to contribute to this type of investment. We do this in cooperation with Danish enterprises wishing to establish companies in developing countries in Africa, Latin America and Europe.
All investments in which IFU participates are assessed in terms of their effect on the development in the country of investment. Such assessments are made prior to, during and after the completion of IFU's investment. This allows us to measure the effects in a number of key areas of the investments in the developing countries in which the investments are made.
More information on development effects is found under the tabs on the left.
