The majortity of NIB's operations is located in the Bank's Nordic and Baltic member countries. Outside the membership area, projects financed by NIB should be of mutual interest to the country of the borrower and the member countries.
NIB has entered into agreements on financial cooperation with national governments around the world. As a rule, such agreements enable NIB to participate in the financing of projects in both the public and private sectors. NIB has established formal long-term cooperation with countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and Eurasia, Latin America and the Middle East.
Furthermore, NIB has cooperation agreements with three regional multilateral banks: the Black Sea Trade & Development Bank, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration CABEI and the Andean Development Corporation CAF. Through these institutions, NIB can operate also in countries where it has no agreement on financial cooperation.
In 2016, NIB increased its new lending to EUR 4.4 billion. While corporate investment remained subdued, the demand for long-term loans saw strong growth, particularly in the public sector.
