Carlo Monticelli

“The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) has continuously adapted to the changing context in which it operates by developing new tools and instruments to meet member states’ needs, while remaining focused on its social mandate,” CEB Governor Carlo Monticelli said today, addressing the PACE Standing Committee. “A consolidated ability to respond flexibly and rapidly to our member states’ needs is what makes the CEB the social development bank of choice for Europe,” he added.

Governor Monticelli reiterated the CEB’s commitment to engaging with member states "with the twin objectives of invigorating social cohesion and ensuring that no one is left behind: objectives which are essential for democracy, prosperity and peace".
