A Fireside Chat with EIB Group President Nadia Calviño


In conversation with: 

  • Masood Ahmed, President, Center for Global Development
  • Mikaela Gavas, Managing Director, Europe and Senior Policy Fellow, Center for Global Development

On January 1, 2024, Nadia Calviño took over as president of the European Investment Bank (EIB). Her appointment comes at a critical time for the world’s largest multilateral financial institution. With close to EUR88 billion of investment in 2023, including EUR 9.5 billion outside the EU, the EIB Group is a key vehicle to support EU priorities at home and around the world. As the EIB confronts urgent challenges such as supporting Ukraine, accelerating the energy transition, and—alongside fellow Multilateral Development Banks—reforming the international financial architecture, a clear vision is more critical than ever.

In the margins of the 2024 World Bank and IMF Spring Meetings and amid an important electoral year for Europe, CGD President Masood Ahmed and CGD Europe Managing Director Mikaela Gavas will host EIB President Nadia Calviño to discuss her approach to the challenges she faces and the new EIB Group strategy recently endorsed by Europe’s 27 finance ministers.
