    Manila: The Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Trade and Supply Chain Finance Program (TSCFP) has signed an agreement with Dubai Islamic Bank Pakistan Limited (DIBPL) to support trade in Pakistan.

    ADB will provide guarantees to help DIBPL expand its trade finance business in Pakistan. TSCFP has been operating in the country since 2008. The addition of DIBPL increases TSCFP’s Pakistan partner banks to 13 and makes Pakistan one of the program’s most promising markets. 


    To date, the program has supported more than $17.3 billion in trade in Pakistan through 5,891 transactions. This support has predominantly been provided for steel, polypropylene, fertilizers, and machinery for garments and weaving. In 2020, TSCFP supported 650 transactions in Pakistan valued at $1.2 billion, with 51% cofinanced with commercial banks.

    "This further demonstrates our commitment to supporting trade in Pakistan," said TSCFP Relationship Manager for Pakistan Nana Khurodze in a press release on Thursday.

    "We are delighted to work with DIBPL to support its initiatives with trading companies, including providing small and medium-sized enterprises with access to global trade," Khurodze stated.      

    Backed by ADB's AAA credit rating, TSCFP provides loans and guarantees to more than 200 partner banks to support trade, creating import and export opportunities for enterprises across Asia and the Pacific. 

    DIBPL is the wholly owned subsidiary of Dubai Islamic Bank UAE. DIBPL has operated in Pakistan since 2006 with a network of 235 branches located in around 70 cities.
