Savior Mwambwa, director of the Zambian NGO Center for Trade and Development Policies (CTPD), thinks the EIB should move away from Africa. Instead the EU could channel its development money through other institutions which are better suited to bring development in Africa.
Investment banks like the EIB can play a role in the South were there is a lack of capital. But these investments have to happen under certain conditions and with respect to the local context says Filomeno Sta Ana from the Action for Economic Reforms, Philippines
Maria José Romero: “Es necesario que el dinero que se canaliza atravès del Banco en América Latina tenga un mayor contròl de lo que actualmente està teniendo”
The EIB’s involvement mainly serves EU interests and not those of the people in the South according to Lindy Nacpil, International Coordinator of Jubilee South, a network of anti-debt coalitions in more than 60 countries across Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
