Announcing the inaugural OPIC Impact Awards

OPIC is proud to recognize some of our outstanding partners with our first ever OPIC Impact Awards for excellence in development finance.  The awards, which will be given out at a ceremony on March 11, will highlight the important work OPIC clients are doing in emerging economies around the world. OPIC-supported projects in clean energy, infrastructure, healthcare and other sectors  are helping create jobs, improve lives and stimulate economic growth. Awards will be given in six categories including American Small Business, Renewable Resources, Development Impact, Critical Infrastructure, Private Equity and Access to Finance.

Impact award winners were selected through a rigorous process that considered their focus in priority sectors or regions, innovation in overcoming difficulties, quality of results, risk mitigation practice, development impact, and other factors, such as serving as a model in project development and execution.

We’re looking forward to honoring the winners on March 11 and sharing more details about each project in the coming weeks. Read more about the OPIC Impact Awards: https://www.opic.gov/blog/opic-impact-awards. For media interested in attending please visit our media advisory for details.
