The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) was established to help build a new, post-Cold War era in Central and Eastern Europe. It has since played a historic role and gained unique expertise in fostering change in the region – and beyond. The EBRD is committed to furthering progress towards ‘market-oriented economies and the promotion of private and entrepreneurial initiative’. The EBRD serves the interests of all its shareholders – 65 countries from five continents plus the European Union and the European Investment Bank – not just those countries which receive its investments (€9.4 billion in 2016). We all stand to gain from the EBRD region’s closer and deeper integration into the global economy.
