The European Investment Bank in its archives: the first Thirty years 1958-1988

The European Investment Bank (EIB) was created in 1958 by the Treaties of Rome, signed on 25 March 1957. The EIB is an autonomous financial body within the European Union. Its main mission is to contribute to the development, the economic and social cohesion and integration of EU Member States through investments. The EIB also supports the EU development cooperation worldwide. From 2015 the EIB is part of the new Framework Partnership Agreement which set the frame for an enhanced cooperation and partnership between the HAEU and the EU Institutions. In 2018 the EIB celebrates its 60th anniversary to which the Historical Archives of the European Union contributes with this exhibition.
