Mission and strategy

1 copy_v1.jpg The Bank’s mission is to promote the development of market economy in its member states, their sustainable economic growth and the expansion of trade and other economic ties through investment.

Under its updated Strategy, EDB is planning to build up the volume of its current investment portfolio to US $3.3 billion by end-2017. In this context, the share of regional integration projects should make at least 50% of the total investment portfolio.

Under its Strategy, the EDB will focus on projects generating integration effects in the following sectors:

  • infrastructure;
  • energy generation;
  • machine engineering;
  • mining;
  • petrochemical industry.

Following an instruction of the Bank’s Council, a new section, Expansion of EDB Membership, has been added to the Strategy.

Certain mechanisms of the Strategy implementation have been developed, inter alia in the part of mobilising essential funding and liquidity in local currencies.
