Since the global economic and financial crisis, Europe has been suffering from low levels of investment. Collective and coordinated efforts at European level are needed to reverse this downward trend and put the EU on the path of economic recovery.
The €315 billion worth European Investment Plan is an important tool to speed up the economic growth and job creation in Europe.
The European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI) has a huge potential to contribute to the modernisation of the European industry but its success depends on industrial participation.
The workshop took place on 30 November, 12.30 - 16.30.
