Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank (www.EIB.org) and its specialised arm for international partnerships, EIB Global, gave a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the European Development Days, hosted by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

EIB President also highlighted the increased relevance of the Global Gateway initiative to “enhance connections, address the challenges of food and energy security, double down on the Sustainable Development Goals to counter an alarming trajectory, and protect vulnerable communities globally from the devastating consequences of climate change, COVID-19, and the war”, and reaffirmed EIB’s commitment to step-up Team Europe investments around the world.
