Investment Relationships, Development Finance, and Monetary Affairs

The International Finance and Development (IFD) division leads the Bureau’s work on development finance, investment, and macroeconomic issues, in cooperation with other U.S. government agencies. We promote prosperity at home and abroad by supporting international standards, private sector development, good governance, and transparency that promote U.S. economic growth and job creation. We support foreign investment in the United States and stable, transparent investment climates overseas that welcome U.S. private sector activity. IFD engages in bilateral, regional, and multilateral settings to promote policies that support U.S. economic and foreign policy interests.
