Through our lending to countries in the Eastern Neighbourhood – Belarus, Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia – the European Investment Bank plays a vital role in building important social and economic infrastructure. Our projects develop the private sector and countries’ resilience to climate change. At the same time, our presence reinforces relations with the European Union and its Member States.
Some key projects include:
- the refurbishment of teaching, research and support facilities in seven universities in Ukraine
- improved access to water supply systems in Georgia
- new electricity transmission lines to improve connections between the markets of Moldova and Romania
