We have been supporting Turkey’s development and integration with the EU since the mid-1960s. More than EUR 23.5 billion has been lent since 2000 and we have stepped up our commitment since accession negotiations began. Loans to Turkey in 2014 alone reached over EUR 2 billion.
In particular, we have focused on the following areas: support to SMEs, transport, the environment and energy projects.
In the attached video, you will find the highlights of the forum as well as of two projects financed by the EIB, the Bosphorus tunnel and earthquake mitigation in Istanbul.
