Promoting investment in emerging economies
MSM has designed one of the first courses in Europe that comprises an introduction to blended financial instruments, a critical knowledge area to take full advantage of a new generation of financial sources aimed at promoting private investment in emerging economies.
2015 has been a critical year for global economic development. Leaders from around the world adopted a global 2030 development agenda at a UN Summit in September 2015. These global goals, called the Sustainable Development Goals, are ambitious and demand equal ambition in using the “billions” in Official Development Assistance to channel and crowd-in “trillions” in investments of all kinds: public and private, national and international. These goals will drive the global economic development agenda over the next 15 years.
"My main goal to attend the Project Finance course was to get introduced with international best practices of blended finance to foster investment into SMEs, cooperatives and farmers in order to achieve sustainable food systems and efficient agri-food chains in Georgia. The program is well-designed, based on the learning-by-doing that enables us receive practical insight along with theory discussing real-life scenarios and getting valuable feedback from lecturers."
