In a statement delivered on behalf of MFAN, Co-chairs George Ingram, Tessie San Martin, and Connie Veillette discuss the House passage of the Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development Act of 2018 (BUILD Act). The co-chairs write, “The legislation would expand U.S. development finance capabilities by establishing a new International Development Finance Corporation (IDFC).
