The Office of the Executive Director EDS21 represents the governments of Albania, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, San Marino, and Timor-Leste.

The mission of our Office is to represent the constituency countries in meetings at the World Bank Group, as well as in direct consultations and negotiations with other Executive Directors’ offices, to gain support for the World Bank Group's twin goals of ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting globally shared prosperity.

We place a high priority on the adequate implementation of World Bank Group activities and seek to ensure that the highest standards of services and governance are fulfilled within the Bank’s decisions at the Board of Executive Directors, in particular, to its clients and the least developed member states. Our focus is also on facilitating the contacts between government officials, private sector, community associations, and academics in constituency countries and the Bank. EDS21 voting powers at the Board equals the sum of all the shares of its constituent countries.

The Executive Director, Mr. Matteo Bugamelli, is currently the Dean of the Board of Executive Directors. Prior, he was Chair of the Board Audit Committee (AC) from 2022-2023 and Chair of the Board Budget Committee (BC) from 2020-2022.
