Europe as an Investment Destination

Europe as an Investment Destination
6 April 2016

The European Political Strategy Centre convened the High-Level Conference ‘Europe as an Investment Destination’ in the context of the implementation of the Investment Plan for Europe – the Juncker Commission's key initiative to support sustainable job creation and growth in Europe. To this end, the European Fund for Strategic Investments, a vital pillar of the Plan, has already triggered investments worth over €76 billion. In total, EFSI is expected to mobilise €315 billion of investment until 2017.

Over 550 business representatives, international and European policy makers, think-tankers, and Member States representatives gathered to debate Europe's place as an attractive investment destination in the global economy and to discuss how Europe can maximize its investment potential to further stir growth and competitiveness.
