Welcome to the Western Balkans Investment Framework

The Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF) is a regional blending facility supporting EU enlargement and socio-economic development in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia. 

The WBIF was established in 2009 as a joint initiative of the European Commission, the Council of Europe Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the European Investment Bank, and several bilateral donors. The World Bank Group and the KfW Development Bank subsequently joined the Framework. In June 2017, the KfW became partner organisation to the WBIF. 

The WBIF provides financing and technical assistance to strategic investments in the energy, environment, socialtransport, and digital infrastructure sectors. It also supports private sector development initiatives. 

*This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244/1999 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
