On Wednesday 25 March, EIB President Werner Hoyer had the honour of welcoming the Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg to the Bank’s headquarters.

Europe is at a crossroads. The EIB, whose resources have been increased, is fully dedicated to meeting the challenges of the European Union. Their Royal Highnesses met senior officials and experts from the institution. The EIB Group’s place in the current European landscape, its impact on the real economy of EU countries, contribution to the revival of growth and employment and role in implementing the Investment Plan for Europe (the Juncker Plan) were at the heart of the exchanges.

The meeting took the form of a working meeting and it was a privilege for President Hoyer and his staff to answer the royal couple’s questions.
