The investment plan, launched by the European Commission in January this year, is an ambitious project to not only unlock over 300 billion euros of investments but also to create an investment friendly environment. While demand and exports have picked up since the crisis, investment rates remain well below peak levels. In this webcast we will discuss whether this plan is likely to a change the current situation, either in the short- or medium term. Will it make the business environment for investment more friendly, or is it promoting only more ‘highways to nowhere’ and ‘white elephant’ projects? As always, we will also focus on short-term developments in the European economies.
