APPLICATION OF PROCEEDS
The net proceeds of ¥24,464,712,329 from the sale of the Notes offered hereby will be used in the
general operations of the EIB, including disbursements of loans heretofore or hereafter granted by the EIB.
DESCRIPTION OF NOTES
The following description of the particular terms of the Notes offered hereby (referred to in the
accompanying prospectus as the "Securities") supplements, and to the extent, if any, inconsistent therewith
replaces, the description of the general terms and provisions to the Securities set forth in the accompanying
prospectus to which description reference is hereby made. Such descriptions do not purport to be complete
and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Fiscal Agency Agreement and to the form of Global
Notes filed by the EIB with the Commission.
General
On January 26, 2006, the EIB issued ¥50,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 1.900% Notes Due
2026, under a fiscal agency agreement dated as of January 24, 2001 (the "Fiscal Agency Agreement", as
described in the accompanying prospectus) between the EIB and Citibank, N.A., as fiscal agent (the "Fiscal
Agent"). The 1.900% Notes Due 2026, offered hereby (the "Notes"), will be issued under the Fiscal Agency
Agreement, and will have the same terms (other than inter alia the price to public and issue date), form part
of the same series and trade freely with the Notes issued on January 26, 2006.
Interest will be paid on the Notes at the rate set forth on the cover page of this prospectus supplement
and will be payable semi-annually in arrear in two equal payments on January 26 and July 26 of each year
(each, an "Interest Payment Date"), with the initial payment on July 26, 2008, to the holders of such Notes as
at the close of business on the 10th calendar day immediately preceding such Interest Payment Date (the
"Record Date"). The Record Date may be changed by agreement among EIB, the Fiscal Agent and all
applicable securities clearing systems. The Notes will bear interest from January 26, 2008. Whenever it is
necessary to compute any amount of accrued interest in respect of the Notes for a period of less than one full
year, other than in respect of regular semi-annual interest payments, interest will be calculated on the basis of
the actual number of days in the period and a year of 365 days unadjusted. The Notes are not subject to any
sinking fund or to redemption prior to maturity. Registration or transfer of Notes will be effected without
charge to the holders thereof.
If an Interest Payment Date or the maturity date is a day on which banking institutions are authorized or
obligated by law to close in London, Tokyo, New York or in a place of payment, then payment of principal
or interest need not be made on that Interest Payment Date or the maturity date. The EIB may make the
required payment on the next succeeding day that is not a day on which banking institutions are authorized or
obligated by law to close in London, Tokyo, New York or in the place of payment. The payment will be
made with the same force and effect as if made on the Interest Payment Date or maturity date and no
additional interest shall accrue for the period from the Interest Payment Date or maturity date to the date of
actual payment.

Payment of the principal of and interest on the Notes made at the offices of the Fiscal Agent and any
paying agent (a "Paying Agent") shall be subject in all cases to any fiscal or other laws and regulations
applicable thereto. Consequently, neither the EIB nor any Paying Agent will make any additional payment in
the event of a withholding tax being required in respect of any payment under or in connection with the
Notes. Neither the EIB nor any Paying Agent shall be liable to any holders of the Notes or other person for
commissions, costs, losses or expenses in relation to or resulting from such payments. In addition to the
S-7





Notes, the EIB may issue from time to time other series of Securities under the Fiscal Agency Agreement
consisting of notes, bonds, debentures or other unsecured evidences of indebtedness.
The Fiscal Agent will be responsible for:
· maintaining a record of the aggregate holdings of all outstanding Notes evidenced by the DTC
Global Note and the European Global Note;
· registering transfers between DTC, on the one hand, and Euroclear or Clearstream, on the other
hand;
· ensuring that payments of principal and interest in respect of the Notes received by the Fiscal Agent
from the EIB are duly credited to the holders of the Notes;
· transmitting to the EIB any notices from the holders of the Notes;
· maintaining and promptly updating the respective Schedules to the DTC Global Note and the
European Global Note; and
· ensuring that the sum of the respective aggregate principal amount shown by the latest entry in the
respective Schedules to the DTC Global Note and the European Global Note does not exceed at any
one time ¥75,000,000,000.
The Notes shall be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York,
except with respect to authorization and execution by the EIB which shall be governed by the Statute of the
EIB (the "Statute") set forth in the Protocol annexed to the Treaty of Rome of March 25, 1957 establishing
the European Economic Community, as amended and supplemented from time to time (the "Treaty").
Payment of Principal and Interest
The principal of and interest on the Notes will be paid in Japanese yen. The EIB may change or
terminate the designation of paying agents from time to time. Payments of principal and interest at such
agencies will be subject to applicable laws and regulations, including any withholding or other taxes, and will
be effected by check, or, under certain circumstances, by transfer to an existing Japanese yen account
maintained by such holder.
The EIB will redeem the Notes on January 26, 2026 at 100% of the principal amount plus accrued but
unpaid interest to date.
The Fiscal Agent is not a trustee for the holders of the Notes and does not have the same responsibilities
or duties to act for such holders as would a trustee.
The Notes will be sold in denominations of ¥100,000 and, in the case of Notes held through DTC,
integral multiples thereof. As long as the Notes are admitted to the official list of and to trading on the Bourse
de Luxembourg, the EIB will maintain a paying and transfer agent in Luxembourg.
Further Issues
The EIB may from time to time, without notice to or the consent of the holders of the Notes, create and
issue further notes ranking pari passu with the Notes in all respects (or in all respects except for the payment
of interest accruing prior to the issue date of such further notes or except for the first payment of interest
following the issue date of such further notes) and such further notes shall be consolidated and form a single
series with the Notes and shall have the same terms as to status, redemption or otherwise as the Notes.
S-8





Notices
All notices will be published in English in London in the Financial Times, in New York in The Wall
Street Journal (Eastern Edition) and, so long as any of the Notes are listed on the Luxembourg Stock
Exchange and the rules of that Exchange so require, on the website of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange at
http://www.bourse.lu. If at any time publication in any such newspaper is not practicable, notices will be
valid if published in an English language newspaper with general circulation in the respective market regions
as determined by the EIB. Any such notice shall be deemed to have been given on the date of such
publication or, if published more than once on different dates, on the first date on which publication is made.
Regarding the Fiscal Agent
Citibank, N.A. will be acting in its capacity as Fiscal Agent through its office located at Citigroup
Centre, Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5LB, United Kingdom.
BOOK-ENTRY SYSTEM
The Notes will be represented by the DTC Global Note and the European Global Note. Both the DTC
Global Note and the European Global Note will be deposited, until all obligations of the EIB under the Notes
are satisfied, with the Note Depositary for DTC, Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V. (the "Euroclear Operator" or
"Euroclear") and Clearstream Banking, société anonyme ("Clearstream"). Beneficial interests in the Global
Notes will be represented through accounts of financial institutions acting on behalf of beneficial owners as
direct and indirect participants in DTC, Euroclear and Clearstream.
Upon the issuance of the Global Notes, the EIB expects that the Euroclear Operator, Clearstream, and
DTC will credit on their respective book-entry registration and transfer systems the respective principal
amounts of the Notes represented by such Global Notes to the accounts of persons that have accounts with
the Euroclear Operator, Clearstream, or DTC ("participants"), as the case may be. The accounts to be
credited shall be designated by the Underwriter. Ownership of beneficial interests in the Global Notes will be
limited to participants or persons that may hold interests through participants. The Notes will not be held in
definitive form. Ownership of beneficial interests in the Global Notes will be shown on, and the transfer of
that ownership will be effected only through, records maintained by the Euroclear Operator, Clearstream,
DTC and direct and indirect participants (with respect to interests of persons other than participants). Owners
of beneficial interests in a Global Note (other than participants) will not receive written confirmation from
Euroclear, Clearstream, or DTC of their purchases. Each beneficial owner who is a participant is entitled to
receive upon request written confirmation providing details of the transaction as well as periodic statements
of its holdings from Euroclear, Clearstream, and DTC. Each beneficial owner who is not a participant may
receive a confirmation from the direct or indirect participant through which such beneficial owner entered
into the transaction. The laws of some states of the United States require that certain purchasers of securities
take physical delivery of such securities in definitive form. Such limits and such laws may impair the ability
to own, transfer or pledge beneficial interests in the Global Notes.
Any payment of principal or interest due on the Notes on any interest payment date or at maturity will be
made available by the EIB to the Fiscal Agent or any Paying Agent on or before such date. On the respective
payment date, the Fiscal Agent and/or any Paying Agent will make such payments to the Euroclear Operator,
Clearstream, and DTC or its nominee, as the case may be, in accordance with arrangements between the
Fiscal Agent and/or any Paying Agent and the Euroclear Operator, Clearstream, and DTC or its nominee.
Euroclear, Clearstream, and DTC or its nominee, upon receipt of any payment of principal or interest, will
credit participants' accounts with payments in amounts proportionate to their respective beneficial interests in
the principal amount of the Global Notes as shown on the records of the Euroclear Operator, Clearstream,
and DTC or its nominee. Payments by direct and indirect participants to owners of beneficial interests in the
Global Notes held through such direct and indirect participants will be governed by standing instructions and
customary practices, as is now the case with securities held for the accounts of customers in bearer form or
S-9





registered in "street name", and will be the responsibility of such participants. Neither the EIB nor the Fiscal
Agent nor any Paying Agent will have any responsibility or liability for any aspect of the records relating to
or payments made on account of beneficial ownership interests in the Global Note or for maintaining,
supervising or reviewing any records relating to such beneficial ownership interests.
So long as a depositary, or its nominee, is the registered owner or holder, as the case may be, of a Global
Note, such depositary or such nominee, as the case may be, will be considered the sole owner and holder of
the Notes represented by the Global Notes for all purposes of the Notes. Owners of beneficial interests in the
Global Notes will not be entitled to have the Notes represented by the Global Notes registered in their names
and will not receive or be entitled to receive physical delivery of definitive Notes in bearer form.
Accordingly, each person owning a beneficial interest in the Global Notes must rely on the procedures of
Euroclear, Clearstream, and DTC and, if such person is not a participant, on the procedures of the direct or
indirect participant through which such person owns its interest, to exercise any rights of a holder of Notes.
The Global Notes may not be transferred without the prior written consent of the EIB and except in
combination and as a whole by the Note Depositary to another custodian and common depositary for such
Global Notes or to a successor of such custodian and common depositary, provided that such subsequent
custodian and common depositary or successor, as the case may be, expressly agrees to abide by such
restrictions on transfer.
DTC has informed the EIB that: DTC is a limited-purpose trust company organized under the New York
Banking Law, a "banking organization" within the meaning of the New York Banking Law, a member of the
Federal Reserve System, a "clearing corporation" within the meaning of the New York Uniform Commercial
Code and a "clearing agency" registered pursuant to the provisions of Section 17A of the U.S. Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. DTC was created to hold securities of its participants and to facilitate
the clearance and settlement of securities transactions among its participants in such securities through
electronic computerized book-entry transfers and pledges between accounts of the participants, thereby
eliminating the need for physical movement of securities certificates. Participants include securities brokers
and dealers (including underwriters), banks, trust companies, clearing corporations and certain other
organizations, some of whom (and/or their representatives) own DTC. Access to the DTC book-entry system
is also available to others, such as banks, brokers, dealers and trust companies that clear through or maintain
a custodial relationship with a participant, either directly or indirectly. DTC agrees with and represents to its
participants that it will administer its book-entry system in accordance with its rules and by-laws and
requirements of law.
Euroclear and Clearstream have informed the EIB that: Euroclear and Clearstream each hold securities
for their customers and facilitate the clearance and settlement of securities transactions by electronic book-
entry transfer between their respective account holders. Euroclear and Clearstream provide various services
including safekeeping, administration, clearance and settlement, securities lending and borrowing and related
services. Euroclear and Clearstream also deal with domestic securities markets in several countries through
established depository and custodial relationships. Euroclear and Clearstream have established an electronic
bridge between their two systems across which their respective participants may settle trades with each other.
Euroclear and Clearstream are indirect participants in DTC.
Euroclear and Clearstream participants are investment banks, securities brokers and dealers, banks,
central banks, supranationals, custodians, investment managers, corporations, trust companies and certain
other organizations. Indirect access to Euroclear and Clearstream is available to other institutions which
clear through or maintain a custodial relationship with any other securities intermediary that holds a book-
entry interest in the securities through one or more securities intermediaries standing between such other
securities intermediary and Euroclear or Clearstream.
The following arrangements will apply to the Notes:
