Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime Minister of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and Governor of the EIB, and Philippe Maystadt, President of the EIB, laid the first stone of the Bank's new building on 13th July, in the presence of a number of key figures in Luxembourg.

The new building will form an extension of the EIB's existing headquarters in the "North European Quarter" in Kirchberg, Luxembourg.

Its architecture will be innovative, sober and functional, and was conceived entirely with environmental and ecological factors in mind.
