The EIB in Croatia
EIB loans in Croatia came to a total amount of EUR 633m in 2013, the year it became an EU Member State. This is more than double the amount for each of the previous two years, EUR 305m in 2011 and EUR 300m in 2012. Over the past five years, we have invested over EUR 2.1bn in the Croatian economy. Most of this (73%) has gone to SMEs, while transport and telecommunications (13%) and water, sewerage, solid waste and urban development projects (11%) have also been notable beneficiaries.

The EIB is investing EUR 80m to finance the expansion of Zagreb Airport, in the first EIB project to be developed under PPP financing in the Western Balkans. Our funds will go towards the first phase of the expansion, which involves the construction of a new passenger terminal and associated landside and airside infrastructure. Once complete, passenger capacity at Zagreb airport will increase from around 2.5m to 5m per years.
Supporting Croatia’s small businesses
We have lent EUR 860m to the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (HBOR) over seven separate operations to on-lend to SMEs in the country, supporting jobs and growth in the EU’s newest Member State.
