This report covers operations in the ACPs and OCTs, which are carried out under the Cotonou Agreement and the Overseas Association Decision and funded from the Investment Facility as well as from EIB own resources. Operations in South Africa, financed under a different external mandate, and under the Energy Sustainability Facility, are also covered to provide a comprehensive and integrated perspective for the regions.
In 2013 the Bank approved almost EUR 1.5bn of operations, signed around EUR 1bn and disbursed nearly EUR 0.5bn in the ACPs, OCTs and South Africa. Signatures under the ACP Investment Facility increased again, from EUR 355m in 2012 to EUR 471.5m in 2013, demonstrating the pivotal role that private sector lending continues to play in the Bank’s activities in the regions.
