State corporation “Bank for Development and Foreign Economic Affairs (Vnesheconombank)” was established in 2007 in virtue of Federal Law “On Bank for Development” through the reorganization of the Bank for Foreign Economic Affairs of the USSR.
The Bank for Development is one of the key instruments for implementing the state economic policies aimed at removing infrastructure impediments for economic growth, promoting efficient utilisation of natural resources, developing high-tech industries, unleashing innovative and industrial potential of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and ensuring support for exports of industrial goods and services.
Vnesheconombank helps deliver investment projects, which, being of top priority for the economic development, are underfunded by private financial institutions due to their huge scale and scope, complexity, long payback period and high level of risks. The Bank provides support for projects by both granting credits and loans, in particular, jointly with other financial institutions, and issuing guarantees and sureties.
Vnesheconombank finances infrastructural and innovative projects of national significance, and projects designed to increase efficiency of the natural resources utilisation, protect and improve natural environment. Seeking to facilitate SME development in the country, the Bank implements a state programme of financial support for SMEs. Furthermore, Vnesheconombank co-finances investment projects aimed at single-industry town modernisation, renders support for Russian exporters in global markets and helps attract direct foreign investment in Russia. *
