OVERVIEW OF SUPPORT : The EIB’s overriding aim in the ACP and OCT regions is to help generate long-term private sector-led sustainable economic growth and reduce poverty through job creation and improved access to productive resources. The Bank also supports public sector infrastructure projects that are vital to underpin private sector development and create a thriving business environment, particularly for SMEs, which are the foundation of developing countries’ economies.
