The EIB in Hungary

EIB investment in Hungary for 2015 reached EUR 1.4 billion, almost doubling the 2014 investment of EUR 750 million. Our investments crossed all sectors of the Hungarian economy, from services with 27%, through transport accounting for 26%. Notable contributions were also made to the water sector as well as urban development, energy and SMEs. Over the past five years, the Bank has invested EUR 5.9 billion in the country.

Upgrading Hungary’s railway network

We are lending EUR 250 million to help the Hungarian railways to become more competitive and attractive. Our loan supports Hungary’s 2013-2016 investment programme for railway infrastructure rehabilitation and upgrading. The programme will improve the safety, capacity and performance of the existing conventional railway infrastructure with positive impacts for travellers and freight traffic.

Innovation that improves lives

For well over 100 years, Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter has been working to improve its customers’ health and quality of life. It has recently stepped up its research and development work and we are helping to promote one of the biggest research projects in central Europe.

Supporting educational equality

We have been successfully supporting student loans, enabling students with a thirst for knowledge to enrol in university courses. In Hungary we have been supporting the educational system for nine years and through four loans we have backed almost half of all student loans in Hungary.
