    Egypt and the EIB

    The EIB has worked with Egypt since 1979. The Bank operates in Egypt in line with the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and other EU bilateral agreements.

    We have supported the country’s transition to a modern economy by financing key water, sanitation and transport infrastructure and by enhancing access to finance for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

    Examples include the Fayoum wastewater expansion project and the Kitchener drain in the Nile Delta, which improved sanitation services for more than one million people. We also help reduce traffic and CO2 emissions in Cairo and Alexandria. We support the rehabilitation and modernisation of public transport by building new metro lines and railways. In Alexandria, we are contributing to the upgrade of the Alexandria Raml train and Abu Qir metro line, which is part of an investment package estimated at €1.6 billion. The funds will be used to carry out signalling upgrades, install improved telecommunications and centralised control systems as well as procure new rolling stock.
