Why this transfer?
Invest International brings together expertise, tools and guidelines from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and the Entrepreneurial Development Bank (FMO). The organisation helps governments of developing countries and the private sector to tackle challenges. They also work with the commercial sector. To strengthen its financing capabilities, Invest International will receive €833 million of investment capital from the Dutch government.
