The European Investment Bank: an overlooked (f)actor in EU external action?
- EU and strategic partners,
- EU economic affairs,
- EU institutional affairs,
- EU strategy and foreign policy,
- Internal EU policies,
This Egmont paper aims to 1) explore the extent to which the EIB already delivers, through its operations outside the Union, on the priorities guiding EU external action and 2) to identify ways in which the potential of the EIB as a multiplier of EU external action could be exploited in a better manner. The paper concludes with recommendations aimed at maximising the potential contribution of the EIB as an integral part of the overall EU toolbox for external action.
