Mr. Ayman Sejiny delivered opening remarks and expressed his high expectations for the IDFC's role to promote global policy dialog and multilateral cooperation. The CEO of ICD (ICD-PS.org) pointed out that IDFC has a great potential to enhance co-offerings through advisory, debt capital markets products, blended and co-financing opportunities among its member institutions to mobilize larger capital towards the SDG-related financing gap. “ICD, with its new Global Private Sector Platform, can facilitate the direct access of IDFC members to development finance space and I invite all IDFC members to join and benefit from the platform” said Mr. Sejiny, the CEO of ICD.
