Highlights in 2013

To support economic diversification in its countries of operations, the EBRD invests in a broad spectrum of industries including in 2013: chemicals, automotive supply chains, non-ferrous metals processing, equipment-manufacturing, forestry products and pharmaceuticals.

In 2013, the M&S team signed 52 projects for a total commitment of approximately €900 million. Highlights included investments with international companies such as Draexlmaier in the automotive sector, Grupa Azoty in the chemical sector, Kronospan in the forestry sector, Danieli in the steel sector, as well as investments with local companies mainly in the Early Transition Countries - the Caucasus, Central Asia, Belarus and Moldova – where the Bank signed 22 projects and in the Western Balkans where the Bank signed 5 projects. The sectorial spread of projects with local companies was broad, with notable investments in furniture making, building materials and retail.

The EBRD is increasing its focus on supporting the development of the knowledge economy in its countries of operations and industry provides significant scope for innovation in the region. Examples include the EBRD’s investments in the Italian company Danieli in Croatia and Russia and with TürkTraktör in Turkey. The Bank also works to attract foreign direct investment to the EBRD region, improve corporate governance and provide local currency financing to limit client exposure to foreign exchange risk.
