The EIB in Hungary
EIB investment in Hungary for 2016 reached EUR 692 million. 41% of our lending reached the small businesses in Hungary, followed by 32% for environmental projects and 14% and 12% for infrastructure and innovation respectively. Over the past five years (from 2012-2016), the Bank has invested EUR 5.2 billion in the country.
The total investment of the EIB Group (the European Investment Bank and the European Investment Fund) in Hungary in 2016 was EUR 700 million.
We are lending EUR 40 million to help the Hungarian railways to finance the purchase of new rolling stock and introduce safety improvements. This will help to provide higher quality railway services on the Austrian-Hungarian cross-border railway network along the strategic trans-European transport corridor.
