EIB Global offers support to Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia on the next step of their EU accession paths

18.12.2023 09:00 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) The EU bank welcomes the European Councils decision to start accession negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova, and to grant candidate country status to Georgia.

The Bank is actively supporting these three countries, having provided over 10billion of financing to date and looks forward to continuing its support on the accession process and convergence with the EU.

The European Investment Bank welcomes the decision taken today by the European Council to start EU accession negotiations with Ukraine, Moldova, and to grant candidate country status to Georgia.

EIB President Werner Hoyer said: «The enlargement process has accelerated economic growth and increased prosperity across the entire EU. Enlargement will continue to strengthen the European project, and the EIB, as an instrument to deepen European economic integration, is fully committed to work with Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia to accelerate their path towards accession.»

Below is a brief overview of the EIBs activities in each country.


In Ukraine, our presence since 2007has been unwavering in its support for EU integration. It has become even more vital with Russias full-scale invasion. Weve invested in municipal infrastructure, energy, transport, small and medium-sized businesses, all with the goal of improving daily life, boosting economic growth, and aiding in the countrys resilience and reconstruction. In total, we have committed 7.3billion of financing.

Since the start of Russias full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, the EIB offered immediate relief to Ukraine, disbursing 1.7billion of financing in 2022and helping finance emergency repairs to the countrys ravaged infrastructure. Through the EU for Ukraine initiative and its Fund, the Bank remains committed to stepping up its activities in Ukraine, in line with the mandate given by EU leaders and in close cooperation with the European Commission, the European Parliament, EU Member States and international partners.

Since establishing its presence in Moldova in 2007, the EIB has channeled over 1.19billion into 33projects, backing EU policy objectives across multiple sectors, such as transport, energy, SMEs, agriculture and municipal infrastructure. 2022was a record year for the EIB in Moldova, with 250million worth of new loans signed with the public sector. 2023saw the Bank extend its first corporate loan in Moldova- a $30million project with Premier Energy Distribution, Moldovas private electricity distribution system operator, aimed at enhancing the quality and reliability of the electrical power network. Today, the Bank signed a 42million loan agreement to upgrade Moldovas railway infrastructure, improving the railway connection between Moldova and Ukraine and boosting trade. This investment benefits both Ukrainian exports and the Moldovan economy, aligning with the EU-Ukraine Solidarity Lanes. Find out more on: http://www.eib.org/moldova


The EIB has worked with Georgia since 2007(first signature in 2010) to support economic and social development in the country. The Bank has been operating in line with the European Neighbourhood Policy, the Eastern Partnership and other EU bilateral agreements. The EIBs commitment in Georgia, which exceeds 2billion, covers many essential sectors from green energy and energy transmission, connectivity, water and wastewater, digital inclusion, sustainable agriculture, and micro, small and medium enterprises access to finance.
