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. Alongside long-term infrastructure investments, the EFSI will provide funding for small and medium-sized companies (SME) and mid-cap projects. Besides, a European investment portal and a hub for investment advice will be established to give guidance and support.
