Enzo Quattrochiocche 22/03/2011 Secretary General of The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

On the evening of March 22, 2011, Enzo Quattrociocche, the Secretary General of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), delivered an address to a select cadre of policy students, staff and alumni at the Master of Public Affairs (MPA) program at SciencesPo Paris. Mr. Quattrociocche's presentation, which took place at a private restaurant in Paris, focused on the theme of "Democracy and Transition."

IPLI was pleased to welcome MPA Alumni John Biers (MPA 2010) to participate in this event.

Symposium participants engaged in a privileged debate with Mr. Quattrociocche where they vigourously discussed the issues that Mr. Quattrociocche brought up in his address. The international composition of the participants (over 10 nationalities present) promoted a spirited exchange of views on the theme of his talk.

Participants came away from the Symposium with a greater understanding of the role that EBRD plays in international emerging economies.

IPLI extends its thanks to Mr. Quattrociocche for traveling from London to Paris to honor us with his presence. IPLI looks forward to future opportunities to interact with and gain insight from the Secretary General.

Mr. Quattrociocche worked for 12 years as Director for Italy on the Bank's Board of Directors before resigning from the Board in August 2008 and taking up his role as Secretary General in February 2009.

During his period as Director, Mr Quattrociocche served as Chairman of two important Board committees which deal with Bank policies and operations.

Beyond his years as a Board Director at the Bank, he has held management positions at the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance - as Division Chief for IFIs and as Director General - and has worked as an official in the Executive Board of the IMF and in Italy's Ministry of the Treasury.

The Bank's Secretary General is a member of the Executive Committee and works with the President, the Board of Governors and the Board of Directors.

As well as assuming responsibility for the EBRD Annual Meeting, the Secretary General promotes the mission of the Bank to other international institutions while engaging in vital policy dialogue.
