AmCham Breakfast Discussion
23/08/2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am$30
AmCham Cambodia in cooperation with the US Embassy in Cambodia is proud to host a breakfast discussion with the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
OPIC is the US Government’s development finance institution. It mobilizes private capital to help address critical development challenges and in doing so, advances US foreign policy and national security priorities.
Because OPIC works with the US private sector, it helps US businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad. OPIC achieves its mission by providing investors with financing, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds, when commercial funding cannot be obtained elsewhere.
Established as an agency of the U. Government in 1971, OPIC operates on a self-sustaining basis at no net cost to American taxpayers.
We will have a short informal presentation plus Q&A/open discussion, followed by one-on-one meetings for any interested members.
The Speaker: MR. GEOFFREY TAN – Managing Director, Asia-Pacific
Geoffrey Tan is a Managing Director at Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and is OPIC’s Asia-Pacific regional representative based in Thailand. Mr. Tan has worked in emerging markets financing for over 20 years. Since joining OPIC in 2003, he has worked primarily on power, infrastructure and access to finance. These projects have been across Latin America, the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia. Prior to OPIC Mr. Tan worked for the Chase Manhattan Bank (now JPMorgan Chase) in New York, Singapore and Hong Kong focusing on project and structured finance, and for Emerging Markets Partnership in Singapore on private equity infrastructure investments.
