With the current challenges and ongoing uncertainties for global trade and finance, the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) provide exporters and importers with a secure channel to propel trade to what are often considered high-risk emerging markets. For many corporate customers and SMEs the MDBs through their support structures have kept supply chains open and have empowered companies to trade in regions that would otherwise be considered high-risk emerging markets.
