Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical sectors, especially in developing countries. CDC’s work is focused on mobilising capital for specific sustainable development priorities such as health, education and infrastructure, helping to fill the annual financing gap of $2.5 trillion needed every year and deliver against the Goals by 2030.</p> more like this
