Taiwan supports capacity-building and green cities in EBRD region

 

On 15 November, Representative Lin and Dr Alan Rousso, Managing Director of External Relations and Partnerships at the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), signed contribution letters to allocate €486,000 from the TaiwanBusiness-EBRD Technical Cooperation Fund to support two projects aimed at bolstering capacity-building in key policy areas for EBRD Countries of Operations (CoOs) and promoting policy reform to help cities in CoOs to transition to green, smart and inclusive cities.

 

Taiwan has worked closely with the EBRD since 1991 and is a major donor to the Bank. Through the TaiwanBusiness-EBRD Technical Cooperation Fund, a bilateral fund set up in partnership with the EBRD, Taiwan has supported over 300 projects in the Bank’s CoOs.
