On 30 May, the European Investment Bank (EIB) officially inaugurated its new representation office in Skopje, located in the premises of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of North Macedonia. By taking this step, the bank of European Union confirms its support for the country’s sustainable growth and green transition. The new dedicated local presence will enhance technical and financial support for private and public investment.

This effort will help the EU bank to understand regional financing needs, identify more new projects and establish closer ties with national authorities and other stakeholders. To date, the EIB has established offices in 23 EU Member States and 30 countries outside the EU, promoting business and policy dialogue.
At the opening ceremony, Prime Minister of North Macedonia, Dimitar Kovačevski and EIB Vice-President Lilyana Pavlova were joined by the Minister of Finance Fatmir Besimi, the Head of the EU Delegation in North Macedonia David Geer, and other international financial partners and high-level representatives of the business and banking community.
