CoR welcomes EIB Investment Plan project financing

In response to the European Investment Bank EIB's announcement on 22 April 2015, Committee of the Regions (CoR) President Markku Markkula welcomed the first four projects proposed by the EIB for benefitting from an EU budget guarantee under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI). Mr. Markkula called this decision "a great start for the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)" and said the CoR was eager to implement its own Action Plan with the EIB on quality projects for European regions and cities.

The four projects proposed for receiving support cover the following topics:

  • Croatia: new passenger terminal capacity for Dubrovnik airport,
  • Ireland: construction of 14 new primary health care centres,
  • Spain: research and development of plasma proteins to improve the medical treatment of e.g. Alzheimer's disease or vascular and cardiovascular surgery,
  • Italy: investment in more efficient technology in steel product innovation.
