In Conversation with the EBRD President: Multilateralism, the 30-year Milestone of the Bank and Its Plans for the Decades Ahead

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 9:00am to 10:00am ET


As the EBRD reaches a historic milestone this April celebrating its 30th anniversary, multilateral action has never been more important—a vital component in dealing with the global health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the climate change emergency. What lessons have been learned over the past thirty years? How has the EBRD multilateral approach to private-sector development and policy dialogue proved to be successful? What are the keys to success in the coming years?

During the event, Masood Ahmed, President of the Center for Global Development (CGD), will convene with Odile Renaud-Basso, first female President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), to discuss the Bank’s new five-year strategy, the road ahead for the COVID-19 recovery and its agenda on greening the economy, promoting equality of opportunity and advancing the digital transformation.
