The EIB has worked with Spain since 1981. We financed the high-speed train connecting Madrid to Barcelona. We modernised hospitals and universities. We improved regional and social cohesion. In Las Palmas, we transformed the way people move by financing MetroGuagua, a new bus network that uses 17 hybrid-electrical buses. We helped build the energy efficient Lagoh commercial centre in Seville, as part of the Palmas Altas urban plan.
