Increasing the capital base of the EIB to support jobs and growth

At the June 28 and 29 Summit, EU heads of state and government recommended increasing the EIB’s capital by EUR 10bn, thus strengthening its fire power to enhance growth and jobs in Europe. The increase could support up to EUR 60bn of additional financing over the next three to four years. We would target four priority sectors where access to finance has been most difficult and where EIB financing will unlock additional private sector funding. More

Project Highlight

We are committed to working closely with our shareholders to ensure the effective use of the increased lending across all member states. Additional support will focus on local investment needs, address specific financing challenges, notably supporting innovation and SMEs, and back priority projects.” Werner Hoyer
