An Investment Plan for Europe: joining forces Conference of the European Committee of the Regions
On 15 April 2015, the Committee of the Regions (CoR) will bring together EU policy makers and regional and local representatives to assess the Investment Plan from a local perspective. The conference conclusions can be brought to the CoR plenary meeting of the next day the Eurogroup discussion on growth and jobs on 11 May and may contribute to the efforts on aligning the European Semester better with a longer-term investments perspective.
Political leaders and investment experts will discuss three main questions:
- Is the Investment Plan for Europe an answer to the needs at local and regional level?
- What is its potential to support growth and jobs in Europe's regions and cities?
- What role can regions and cities play in the local roll-out of the Investment Plan in the three main strands (mobilisation of investments, managing the project pipeline and improving the investment environment)?
- How to guarantee and improve the investment capacity of regional and local authorities in times of austerity?
