The EIB has worked with Finland since 1994. We improved two sections of the E18 east-west road link in the south and modernised the railway line between Turku, Helsinki and the Russian border. Recently, we invested in education, health and sustainable transport.
The EIB has also contributed to the modernisation of Aalto University, the development of the Kuopio University Hospital and the 15-kilometre tramline in Tampere. We never stop thinking of new ways to make life better.
The EIB has provided Finland with over EUR 16.8 billion affordable and long-term financing for 210 projects, creating job opportunities and boosting growth.
