Key Facts

The ETDB has been established as a regional MDB with a vision to become the financial pillar of economic cooperation among the ECO Member States fostering sustainable economic development and integration. Since 2008, which the Bank started its operations, the total amount of loans disbursed to various operations in the member states reached to USD 856 million by the end of 2014. The Bank has been deploying its corporate competencies to maintain a sound financial position, thereby contributing to business cooperation, investing activity and exports. In reflection to its well-diversified loan portfolio and robust business approach, the Bank so far has no non-performing loans (NPLs), which is one of the best levels among the peer institutions.
