The EIB has worked with Portugal since 1976. We modernised infrastructure around the country and improved access to finance for many small businesses. We invested in The Navigator Company to improve production at the Figueira da Foz pulp plant. We helped transform Lisbon into a better place for families and businesses. We even helped a toy company, Science4You, expand across Europe and the world.
