ACCIONA is taking part in the seminar entitled “Transport, the great push for growth. Investment Plan for Europe” on 8 July, organised by the European Commission’s Representation in Spain and the European Investment Bank.
The seminar, which will focus on financing and transport, will be held at the Headquarters of the European Institutions at Paseo de la Castellana 46, in Madrid.
The event will begin with talks from various representatives of public institutions who will speak about the Investment Plan for Europe, followed by a roundtable session in which representatives from major companies will share their experiences of financed projects.
Jesús Sierra, Europe, Middle East and Africa Regional Director of ACCIONA’s infrastructure division, will participate in the second part of the seminar to talk about the company’s experience of carrying out projects financed by the European Union.
European Investment Plan
The European Commission’s Investment Plan for Europe was approved in 2015 to promote investment, increase competitiveness and support long-term economic growth in the European Union.
Having approved a total of 950 operations in 28 member states to date, the plan has exceeded the initially-earmarked investment target of €315 billion and is expected to reach more than €345 billion in investment. Its financing capacity has also been expanded, with a target to mobilise €500 billion by mid-2020.
Spain is one of the countries that is benefitting the most from this plan, with 100 operations approved to date by the European Investment Bank, with €7.6 billion in financing that will enable around €38.8 billion to be mobilised.
