Marta Gajęcka: full member of the Board of Directors for Poland
8 February 2007
By letter of 16 January 2007, the Republic of Poland nominated Ms Marta Gajęcka (Under-Secretary of State at the Finance Ministry) for appointment as full member of the EIB's Board of Directors to replace Mr Jacek Dominik, who has resigned.
On 24 January 2007, the Governors of the EIB were invited by written procedure to vote on the proposed appointment.
The decision to appoint Ms Gajęcka was taken on 6 February 2007, the date on which the Bank received the requisite majority of votes in favour from the Governors.
Ms Marta Gajęcka has been appointed for the remainder of her predecessor's term of office, which will expire in 2008 at the end of the day of the annual meeting of the Board of Governors during which the annual report, balance sheet and profit and loss account for the 2007 financial year are examined.
The EIB Group has stepped up its level of precaution at its headquarters in Luxembourg and in its external offices. All staff will telework as of 16 March. A small number of staff whose physical presence on EIB premises is indispensable will continue to be present on the EIB campus. The decision aims to protect the health of employees and ensure the continuity of the EIB Group’s activity.
On Wednesday the EIB identified its first case of one staff member who tested positive for corona virus.
As a precautionary measure, the EIB decided not to hold the meeting of its Board of Directors planned for Thursday 12 March in person. Decisions on the Board’s agenda will be taken by written procedure. The Bank has put in place measures to prevent disruption to its governance or operation approval schedule.
On Monday 2 March, the former President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, visited the EIB in Luxembourg on a joint invitation from the Bank, the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and the Court of Auditors.
