Last night, our Secretariat and Chief Economists were welcomed for a private networking cocktail and dinner at the Canadian Ambassador’s Official Residence in Paris.
Attendees included representatives from several of our member institutions, such the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), Bpifrance, the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), the Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN), Finnvera (Finland), SOWALFIN (Belgium), and TAMWILCOM (Morocco). We also had guests from other development banks, including Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (Italy), Instituto de Crédito Oficial (Spain), and the British Business Bank (UK).
We were also joined by representatives from partner institutions, such as the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions, and Cities, the SME Climate Hub, and Bankers for Net-Zero (UK).
We thank Ambassador Stéphane Dion, Minister-Counsellor Stéphane Lambert, and Counsellors Frédérique Delaprée and Nicolas Lepage for their hospitality!
