Industrial Policy Dossier – Juncker's investment plan for Europe
Juncker’s investment plan for Europe – Opportunities for German companies.
The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), a key component of Juncker’s investment plan, was adopted in June 2015. It is expected to mobilise 315 billion euros for the real economy. The EFSI will provide funding for not just long-term infrastructure investments but also SME and mid-cap projects, thus opening up opportunities for German companies in need of fresh capital. A European investment portal and a hub for investment advice will be established to give guidance and support.
