King opens EBRD global headquarters

The King admired the artwork by 16-year-old Ukrainian Sofia Franchuk during a visit to open the global headquarters of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) which has invested heavily in Ukraine. Hundreds of Ukrainian children have begun painting as part of the Kids and Art for Ukraine project, which provides humanitarian and educational support, and its organisers put on a display of some of their work for the King. During his visit, Charles received a rapturous welcome from staff at EBRD, founded in 1991 at the end of the Cold War to build open market economies and promote private enterprise in the former Communist countries of central and eastern Europe.
