Welcome to the Development Business Team
What We Do
The Development Business Team liaise, on your behalf, with all the main international aid-funding agencies including the World
Bank Group, the European Commission, the United Nations agencies and the various Regional Development Banks. Last but not
least we also liaise with our own UK Department for International Development (DFID).
All these agencies exist to improve the prosperity and well-being of people in developing countries. But they need commercial
firms to realise their projects. They also recognise that promoting joint ventures, partnerships and investment between our
companies and those in the developing world will also assist in the development process. Fostering the private sector in poorer
countries promotes growth and emplyment, develops capacity and encourages the transfer of technology.
The agencies spend around sixty billion dollars each year, which represent substantial business opportunities.
Further information, guidance and news can be found in the Guidance and News sections on this page.
The DBT have a range of guides to help you win aid funded business with the following International Financial Institutions
and Programmes including:
Access Africa, European Union, EU Pre-Accession (Phare, ISPA and SAPARD), TACIS (Former Soviet Union), Inter-American Development
Bank, MEDA (Middle East and North Africa)
