Established in 1991, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has become the largest financial investor in a region that stretches from central Europe to central Asia and the southern and eastern Mediterranean. The EBRD helps countries in this region become open, market economies by offering a wide range of financing mechanisms to promote privatization, restructuring, and liberalization. The EBRD is owned by 64 countries (with the United States being the largest single shareholder), the European Union, and the European Investment Bank.
The Global Markets/Commercial Service Liaison Office to the EBRD (GM/CS-EBRD) is an integral part of U.S. representation at the EBRD and works closely with the U.S. Executive Director’s Office to increase the effectiveness of U.S. participation in EBRD programs. GM/CS-EBRD provides information to U.S. businesses on how the EBRD works and how U.S. companies can participate in EBRD projects. GM/CS-EBRD also offers guidance to U.S. companies throughout the project cycle.
The U.S. Commercial Service Business Liaison Office at the EBRD offers some of the same services that a regular CS office offers but because we report to the Advocacy Center located in Washington, DC there is no charge for services. Our CS EBRD Business office combines many of the well known CS services such as the Gold Key, into one category called “Single Company Promotion” and based on time we perform these in the morning and/or afternoon at the Bank. A Single Company Promotion involves up to four meetings with Bankers and an opportunity to tell your company’s history and interest in the 30 countries of operation of the EBRD. We provide counseling and opportunities to receive twice monthly e-procurements from the EBRD website with a link to our website.
