The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is a multilateral bank, founded in 1991 to help build a new post-Cold War era in central and Eastern Europe. It serves the interests of all its shareholders – 71 countries from five continents plus the European Union and the European Investment Bank – not just those countries which receive its investments (a record €13.1 billion in 2022). The EBRD promotes the development of the private sector and entrepreneurial initiative in 36 economies across three continents. The Bank’s investments are aimed at making the economies in its regions competitive, well governed, green, inclusive, resilient, and integrated.
