Abstract

Key Points:

• A gap in trade finance is represented by unmet demand for lending and guarantees to support $1.6 trillion in trade, $425 billion of which is in developing Asia.

• Availability of trade finance impacts economic growth and job creation.

• According to the findings of the survey, an increase of 5% in availability of trade finance could result in an increase of 2% in production and 2% more jobs.

• Trade finance programs of multilateral development banks help fill trade finance gaps, both globally and in Asian developing economies.
