We have reached the investment target of €315 billion under the European Fund for Strategic Investments! EFSI is set to trigger €335 billion of additional investment europa.eu/!wT74nd #investEU #EFSI
EFSI aims to mobilise private investment in strategic projects for the EU, ensuring that money reaches and boosts the real economy. We launched it with @EIB in 2015 under the Investment Plan for Europe - also called #JunckerPlan #investEU #EFSI
In practice, EFSI is a €33.5 billion guarantee from the EU and @EIB budgets. It enables EIB to provide financing to higher-risk projects than it normally would. It has led to major economic benefits, unlocking additional investment of €335 billion in three years #investEU #EFSI
The EU has financed projects which would not have been possible without the EFSI, and all without creating new debt: 2/3 of the investment comes from the private sector #investEU #EFSI
EFSI has an impact on the real economy. It is expected to create 1.4 million new jobs and increase EU GDP by 1.3% by 2020 #investEU #EFSI
