We enable infrastructure that is transparent, responsible and upholds robust standards so that investments deliver long-term benefits, meets the genuine needs of our Pacific neighbours, and avoids unsustainable debt burdens.
Flexible financing tailored to specific needs.
The AIFFP provides both loans and grants to finance infrastructure projects that contribute to the overall stability and economic prosperity of the Pacific and Timor-Leste.
The provision of grants enables the AIFFP’s financing to be more attractive to its sovereign borrowers, as well as ensure the AIFFP can operate in countries where loans are not suitable due to debt concerns.
In providing sovereign loans, the AIFFP, at a minimum, ensures its financing is consistent with Australia’s international obligations on debt sustainability and tailored to reflect a country’s specific debt circumstances.
The loans provided by the AIFFP carry an interest rate broadly in line with or comparable to multilateral development bank rates (e.g. World Bank International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) for sovereign borrowing and benchmarked to market rates for private sector borrowing. Each loan investment will be priced on a loan-by-loan basis.
