“…TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FOR INVESTMENT PROJECTS…”
The CEI Technical Cooperation (TC) Programme constitutes the largest part of the activity under the CEI Fund at the EBRD financed by Italy. Technical Cooperation is offered in the form of grant-type assistance contributing to the preparation and implementation of the EBRD’s investment and non-investment operations, providing advisory services to private- and public-sector clients.
TC projects include support for feasibility and pre-feasibility studies, project implementation, management training, capacity building, and pre-loan audits. These activities target a number of priority areas, including agribusiness, business and finance, energy/climate, institutional development, municipal infrastructure and services, SME support and transport.
Since its inception, the Fund has committed about 30.6 million EUR towards 189 Technical Cooperation projects.
