Governor Alomar meets the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe at CEB HeadquartersPARIS - Governor Alomar, together with his colleagues the Vice-Governors, today met the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), Mr. Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, accompanied in particular by the Secretary General of the Assembly, on the occasion of an official visit to Paris.

The discussions, which took place in a very constructive atmosphere, focussed on relations between the PACE and the Bank. The Governor thus reaffirmed the importance he attaches to strengthening these links.

The meeting also provided an opportunity to address subjects such as the report on “The strategy, governance and functioning of the Council of Europe Development Bank”, which is due to be discussed at the Assembly meeting on 6 October next, as well as the reforms under way at the Council of Europe and their possible implications for the CEB.
