AmCham EU’s assessment of the first results of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)

The American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) believes that productive public investments and effective policies that promote private investments are key enablers of growth and competitiveness. 

Now is the time to fully leverage the European Investment Plan and improve Europe’s competitiveness. Promising developments under the EFSI, coupled with other European investment tools and platforms, cannot replace the Member States’ responsibilities to maintain a high level of productive public investment and adopt appropriate policies to stimulate private investment while moving forward in implementing much-needed structural reforms. Europe needs an overall strong commitment to  attract investment through competitiveness and to deliver results on the initiatives it jointly decides upon.
