  • Miga sticks by €349mn guarantee for African trade finance
  • World Bank’s investment guarantee agency renewed cover for a loan to TDB

The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (Miga) has renewed a €349mn cover for a syndicated loan provided to the Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (TDB) by Standard Chartered, with a focus on financing trade transactions in Africa. This move aims to support TDB’s trade finance operations, close the trade finance gap in Africa, and attract foreign direct investment.
