DEG's intention is to promote economic growth and raise the standard of living in partner countries by supporting promising business initiatives.
DEG supports only successful and long-term viable, i.e. profitable, private enterprises with the posture to generate economic growth. They create jobs and income, contribute to improving their countries' foreign exchange balance by producing competitive products and increase national value added by processing local resources. DEG's promotion of private sector development pursues four key economic aims:
- promote direct investment as the least volatile segment of capital flows into partner countries - also with own venture capital;
- provide long-term loan finance to help safeguard cofinanced investment projects against crises;
- by supporting pioneer investors in new countries and regions, help diversify capital flows;
- as part of financial sector development, strengthen local capital markets so they can provide localized finance for investment projects;
Country in common between DEG and Eastagri Network is Russia.
