A potential project that could be financed with a soft loan always starts with a good idea - and a good plan. A plan that promotes development in the target country and opens up new opportunities for Austrian companies. The Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) makes resources available, via OeKB, for identifying and preparing specific projects in countries eligible for soft loans.

New opportunities for you - and for the recipient country

If you, as an Austrian company, see business opportunities in a public infrastructure project in a country eligible for a soft loan, you can make your potential business partner aware of the “Project preparation programme soft loan". With this programme, the BMF finances preparatory measures, such as studies and tender documents.

In the recipient countries, the programme is intended to provide an impulse for the development of sustainable, effective projects. The programme currently runs until the 31st December 2020.

You can find a concise summary of the most important information in our leaflet on the "Project preparation programme soft loan":
