EBRD-SECO Partnership Meeting, 18 June, 2019 (Berne, Switzerland)

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO has a long-standing partnership with EBRD. Every couple of years, we organize a high-level meeting with EBRD colleagues from London, where we take stock of our partnership, discuss strategic matters and very importantly look into future co-operation opportunities, in a format similar to the meeting with IFC at which some of you participated last January. The last such meeting took place in March 2016.

The 2019 edition of the SECO-EBRD partnership meeting will take place on June 18, 2019 in Berne, Switzerland (Venue: Hotel Ambassador, Seftigenstrasse 99, 3007 Berne). The meeting will start at 10:00 and close at around 16:30. In the morning session, our focus will be on how EBRD works with the private sector and vice versa. The afternoon will be devoted to two thematic areas of EBRD’s work, urban infrastructure on the one hand and economic inclusion / skills development on the other. For details, see the attached draft agenda (the final agenda will be sent to registered participants approximately 10 days prior to the meeting).

You are cordially invited to take part in this event. Please let us know by Friday, May 24, 2019, if you will be able to attend, by sending an email to: wemf.sekretariat@seco.admin.ch .
