Example of development bank assistance to SMEs: EBRD’s trade facilitation programme

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) was established in 1991, following the collapse of communism, to aid the transition from centrally planned to market economies in Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
