European Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, and Commissioner Karmenu Vella, responsible for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, are in Valletta on Friday as part the roadshow to promote the Investment Plan for Europe.
Since the global economic and financial crisis, the EU has been suffering from low levels of investment. The Investment Plan for Europe, which is an essential part of the Juncker's Commission priority "Jobs, Growth and Investment", aims to reverse this downward trend to put Europe firmly on the path of economic recovery. The Investment Plan for Europe has three objectives: removing obstacles to investment by deepening the single market, providing visibility and technical assistance to investment projects and making smarter use of new and existing financial resources.
