Today, at its 209th meeting held in Paris, the Governing Board of the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) elected Dominique Lamiot as Chairman of the Bank’s Governing Board.  

The new Chairman’s three-year term will begin on 18 December 2014. Commenting on Mr. Lamiot’s election, CEB Governor Rolf Wenzel said: “I look forward to an open and fruitful cooperation with the new Chairman of the Governing Board, Mr. Lamiot”.

Set up in 1956, the CEB (Council of Europe Development Bank) has 41 member states. Twenty-two Central, Eastern and South Eastern European countries, forming the Bank's target countries, are listed among the member states. As a major instrument of the policy of solidarity in Europe, the Bank finances social stable by making available resources raised in conditions reflecting the quality of its rating (Aa1 with Moody's, outlook stable, AA+ with Standard & Poor's, outlook stable and AA+ with Fitch Ratings, outlook stable). It thus grants loans to its member states, and to financial institutions and local authorities in its member states for the financing of projects in the social sector, in accordance with its Articles of Agreement.
