Export Finance Australia and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) met in Sydney to discuss opportunities to jointly finance more projects in the Indo-Pacific, and further grow their relationship.

Managing Director and CEO of Export Finance Australia, Swati Dave, welcomed her recently appointed counterpart, JBIC Governor Hayashi Nobumitsu, to Australia.

“Export Finance Australia has a long history of working with financiers across our region, and JBIC is one of our most important and valued partners,” Ms Dave said.

“Export Finance Australia and JBIC have had a strong and growing partnership for many years. We already have a strong track record cooperating on financing opportunities in our region. It was a great pleasure to engage with Governor Hayashi and his team to explore ways we can further deepen our relationship.”

Export Finance Australia and JBIC, alongside the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), form the Trilateral Infrastructure Partnership. The Partnership facilitates financing for sustainable, quality infrastructure development in the Indo-Pacific.

US DFC, India Export-Import Bank (India Exim Bank), JBIC, the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP) and Export Finance Australia met in May in Tokyo, hosted by JBIC, to discuss enhanced collaboration to better connect the Indo-Pacific region as part of the 2022 Quad Leaders’ Summit.

“All agencies are committed to working with our partners to connect and support businesses and sustainable infrastructure projects across our region,” Ms Dave said.

“Export Finance Australia is very pleased by our growing collaboration in areas such as renewable energy, critical minerals and new technologies and opportunities such as clean hydrogen”.
