Inter-American Development Bank Procurement Seminar

SEMINAR & NETWORK: The Inter-American Development Group is visiting Denmark to meet Danish companies and learn about the Danish solutions. Latin America Business Forum invites you to meet Inter-American Development Bank Group, and learn about the bank, their procurement practices and opportunities for cooperation.

What do Peru’s efforts to eradicate fruit flies and the Panama Canal have in common? They have both received support from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). IDB operates like a big cooperative backed by contributors from its 45 member countries. The private sector plays a fundamental role in achieving growth, and since 1 January 2016, the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC) has been the single point of contact within IDB for private companies.

Join this seminar to learn more about IDB, its procurement processes and the opportunities for Danish companies.

The seminar is organized by Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Copenhagen Business School and is open to all Danish companies.

IDB is especially interested in solutions within:

  • Environment and energy
  • Agribusiness
  • Water and sanitation
  • Transport and logistics
  • Education and Health
