Welcome to the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service Liaison Office to the World Bank
Since inception in 1944, the World Bank’s mission has evolved from a single institution (the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, IBRD), focusing on post World War II reconstruction, to a closely associated group of five development institutions (the IBRD, plus the International Development Association, IDA; the International Finance Corporation, IFC; the Multilateral Guarantee Agency, MIGA; and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, ICSID) with a present-day mandate of worldwide poverty alleviation through inclusive and sustainable development. The World Bank provides loans, guarantees, and technical assistance for public- and private-sector projects and generates tens of thousands of contracts every year, ranging in size from a few thousand to hundreds of millions of dollars. These represent numerous commercial possibilities for businesses, including small- and medium-sized enterprises, in public works, supply of goods, and consulting services.
The U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (US&FCS) Liaison Office to the World Bank (CS World Bank) is an integral part of the Office of the Executive Director for the United States. CS World Bank’s mission is to help U.S. businesses take advantage of commercial opportunities through the World Bank’s numerous projects.
CS-World Bank provides the following services to U.S. firms and organizations:
