The European Commission has announced a €315 billion Investment Plan to get Europe growing again and get more people back to work.
The Plan is built on three main strands
a new European Fund for Strategic Investments, guaranteed with public money, to mobilise at least € 315 billion of additional investment over the next three years (2015 - 2017);
a credible project pipeline coupled with an assistance programme to channel investments where they are most needed;
an ambitious roadmap to make Europe more attractive for investment and remove regulatory bottlenecks.
