Her Majesty’s Government has no plans to join the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB). The CEB focuses its operations in 22 target countries in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, including the Balkans. The UK already has the tools to achieve our development objectives in these geographies in an effective way that represents value for money for the UK tax payer. For example, we work bilaterally through the joint DFID-FCO Good Governance Fund and have a multilateral footprint through our capital share in the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
