Since 2000, the EIB has lent €474 million to Albania. The focus of our activities has been key transport infrastructure. These strategic projects will improve the country’s integration and connections to the rest of the region and Europe as a whole.
The EU bank makes its first Albania urban development loan to the country’s capital with its Economic Resilience Initiative. Besides cleaning up the river, the project will reorganise streets and urban infrastructure near both banks. The financing includes an EUR 8 million EIB loan, EUR 2.4 million from donors and a technical assistance grant worth EUR 500 000.
