 Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania

(Gedimino ave. 51, Vilnius)

 

Since the establishment of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in 1991 with the aim to foster transition to market economy in the region, the Republic of Lithuania has been one of the countries of operation eligible for the support from the EBRD. Although Lithuania is today an advanced transition country, there is still scope for financial support from the EBRD. In the new Country Strategy for Lithuania approved last year, fostering private sector competitiveness through innovation, including through private equity funds, and the energy sector, energy efficiency in particular, are identified as priority areas for the coming years. This seminar aims to inform the audience about opportunities offered by the EBRD.
