«This has been a peculiar year for the EBRD’s Legal Transition Programme. Normally our lawyers would have been travelling extensively to meet country officials, discussing their needs in terms of legal technical cooperation and providing advice to them. But the last 12 months have instead been spent working from home without any country visits. The Covid-19 pandemic has radically changed the way we deliver our assistance. Perhaps the biggest surprise has been to see how it is possible to provide advice remotely via email and video conferences. The response has varied depending on the country but overall we can say that most counterparts have been extremely receptive and ready to adapt to the “new normal”. In this way, the EBRD has been able, through its Legal Transition Programme, to continue playing an active role in helping the economies where we invest to upgrade their legal environment for business. We are happy to share some stories with our readership, showing what we have accomplished in the last year.»
