    Hot topics in Bulgaria as part of the roadshow to promote the Investment Plan for Europe

    There is a huge opportunity for Bulgaria to get investments flowing into parts of the economy where job creation and growth is needed most, to kick-start project development and to get risk capital to SMEs. But to be successful, Bulgaria must also drive through the national reforms necessary to improve the investment climate and business infrastructure.

    Promoting the Investment Plan in France

    I am very pleased to be in France to engage with local businesses, government and students about the Investment Plan for Europe and how it can help give the French economy a boost. I also welcome the excellent news that France will contribute €8 billion to the investment plan. With four big member states now having announced contributions, the momentum is building.

    Roadshow reaches Croatia

    Today I was in Zagreb and I met with labour unions, entrepreneurs, industrialists and of course, local authorities. I have a feeling that Croatia will make a big effort to take advantage of the new opportunities for economic growth and investment. This country is full of new opportunities and I'm sure that together we can help Croatia to generate new jobs for Croatians.
