The EIB has worked with Poland since 1990. We modernised the Warsaw airport and repaired flood damage. We financed urban renewal in Katowice to reduce disparities in regional development, make the economy more competitive and improve people’s living standards. We turned a former power plant in Łódź into a cultural and scientific centre. In 2018, Poland was the fifth-largest recipient of EIB financing, after Italy, Spain, France and Germany.
