The EBRD and the coronavirus pandemic

We committed all our activity in 2020-21, worth €21 billion, to help our regions counter the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Our shareholders approved response and recovery measures that significantly enhanced our original Solidarity Package.

We are also preparing our countries for the post-virus era.

Our Resilience Framework provided finance to meet the short-term liquidity and working capital needs of existing clients. 

We expanded financing under our Trade Facilitation Programme.

We offered fast track restructuring for distressed clients, while maintaining our high standards of  accountability.

We enhanced established frameworks that reached out to SMEs and corporates which were not yet our clients.

We have a Vital Infrastructure Support Programme to finance working capital, stabilisation, and essential public investment.

More than ever before, we provided government with high quality, straightforward and usable policy advice
