EBRD looks to emerging markets to kick-start growth


The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development holds its annual meeting in Istanbul on May 10 and 11 with a focus on innovations for economic growth.

The EBRD was established in 1991 to help countries from the former Soviet Union develop market economies but has gradually extended its reach - most recently to North Africa.

Its president, Suma Chakrabarti, explained the bank's objectives and how it is expanding focus.
