The European Association of Public Banks (EAPB) is the voice of the European public banking sector. EAPB represents over 90 financial institutions from 18 countries in Europe, including national and regional development banks, municipality funding agencies and public commercial banks. EAPB members provide financial services and funding for projects that support sustainable economic and social development. Our members finance a sustainable economy, social housing, health care, education, and public infrastructure at national, regional, and local level.
