The EBRD will focus on the following strategic priorities in Türkiye for 2019-2024:
- strengthening resilience of the financial sector and develop domestic capital and financial markets;
- fostering Türkiye’s knowledge economy and higher value-added activities, and promote good governance;
- promoting economic inclusion and gender equality through private sector engagement;
- accelerating Türkiye’s green economy transition and regional energy connectivity.
As well as being a country of operation, Türkiye is also a donor to the EBRD with a total contribution of €31 million. Türkiye established its first bilateral donor fund with EBRD in January 2019, for an amount of €25 million. The fund aims to support projects in Türkiye, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Romania and the Kyrgyz Republic, with the potential to also support Moldova. The fund prioritises projects for SME development, financial sector stability, sustainable infrastructure, energy efficiency, governance and economic inclusion. In 2013, Türkiye provided EU funding to EBRD for its Women in Business programme.
