EIB gives the green light to a loan


The European Investment Bank has given the green light to a loan for the Divača–Koper second track project, in this way enabling Slovenia to complete the financial package for this project. As the Minister of Infrastructure explained, approval of the loan is proof that both the EIB and other EU member states have recognised the importance of the project, both for Slovenia and for Europe as a whole.
With the EIB loan, the second track has actually become a European project. The second track is in fact of key importance for Slovenia and the single European market. By approving the loan, the EIB has recognised the importance of the project for the region. This is confirmation that such a railway line to the coast is essential and that the project regards future generations. The EIB’s participation in what is quite an unusual project on the Silk Road is also significant because a number of obstacles, concerns and competing interests had to be overcome in order for it to be accepted.
Or in the legendary words of Nejc Zaplotnik, one of the most charismatic figures in the history of Slovenian mountaineering, who 40 years ago became one of the first two Slovenians to stand on the summit of the world’s highest mountain (the other was Andrej Štremfelj): “He who seeks a goal will remain empty when he reaches it, but he who finds a path will always carry the goal inside.”
