At the EU level, there is a number of associations of promotional and development banks, both public and private, active on a national or regional level. These associations serve as a networking platform offering an opportunity to share know-how and best practices as well as to discuss experiences from different markets across Europe. They also serve as a lobbying instrument towards EU institutions concerning the EU legal and regulatory framework and its changes. The National Development Bank (NRB) is currently a member of three of such associations.
AECM - European Association of Guarantee Institutions
ELTI - European Long-Term Investors Association
NEFI - Network of European Financial Institutions for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises
