EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development)
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was established
in 1991 when communism was crumbling in central and Eastern Europe
and ex-soviet countries needed support to nurture a new private sector
in a democratic environment. Today the EBRD uses the tools of investment
to help build market economies and democracies in 27 countries from
central Europe to central Asia.
The EBRD is the largest single investor in the region and mobilises
significant foreign direct investment beyond its own financing. It
is owned by 60 countries and two intergovernmental institutions. But
despite its public sector shareholders, it invests mainly in private
enterprises, usually together with commercial partners.
It provides project financing for banks, industries and businesses,
both new ventures and investments in existing companies. It also works
with publicly owned companies, to support privatisation, restructuring
state-owned firms and improvement of municipal services. The Bank
uses its close relationship with governments in the region to promote
policies that will bolster the business environment.
The mandate of the EBRD stipulates that it must only work in countries
that are committed to democratic principles. Respect for the environment
is part of the strong corporate governance attached to all EBRD investments.
