The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) contributes to the fight against corruption with technical assistance to both policy-makers and businesses. Such dialogue and assistance seek to strengthen legal and economic institutions and promote good corporate governance and sound business environments. These initiatives can have real impact, as businesses in Ukraine can testify.
The Business Ombudsman Council was established in Ukraine in 2014 with the support of the EBRD and funding from the Ukraine Stabilisation and Sustainable Growth Multi-Donor Account. Its donors include: Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and, with the most recent and largest contribution, the European Union.
