EIB Aiming for a Record Performance with Lending of Up to 2 Bln Euros

The European Investment Bank is aiming to increase its lending to record levels in Greece this year, EIB President Dr. Werner Hoyer said on Thursday, in an exclusive interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.
"We have transformed our investment activity in Greece, both in terms of how much we lend, and what we lend for. With three months to go, I can’t yet be precise about how much we will lend this year, but we are aiming for a record performance with lending of up to 2 billion euros," he said.
It is in the area of private sector lending, however, and in particular lending supported by EFSI, that we have had the biggest turnaround, he said. Today, the Bank signed an important financing agreement with Piraeus Bank that took us through the 1 billion euros mark for EFSI backed operations in Greece, he added.
