Nine countries have already contributed to our Investment Plan for Europe- #investEU: UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia and Bulgaria.

Member States can contribute either at the level of the risk-bearing capacity (complementing the contributions from the EU budget and the EIB), through an investment platform or by directly co-financing certain projects and activities.

The Juncker Plan for Investment in Europe: What is the EFSI?
The European Fund for Strategic Investments (‪#‎EFSI‬) is at the heart of our Investment Plan for Europe. EFSI's challenge is to break the vicious circle of under-confidence and under-investment, and to make use of liquidity held by financial institutions, corporations and individuals at a time when public resources are scarce.

Last week, we put the final building blocks in place to kick-start investment in the real economy, ensuring that EFSI is up and running by autumn.

To shift economic growth into a higher gear and create more jobs, we need to invest more in the real economy. The European Union is helping countries and businesses to work as a team; identifying priorities and engineering solutions. A core part of this strategy is the EU’s Investment Plan for Europe - ‪#‎investEU‬

I'm not sure about Spain, +ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ RODRIGUEZ , but in most countries banks already èpaid back all bailout money + interests.
You talk about restricting the market, but then you don't want to bailout banks and let them fail thus letting the market handle it on its own.
Perhaps you didn't consider the consequences of letting a bank fail:
1. People lose access to their savings;
2. The government will have to compensate bank depositors of up to 100k euro per account using tax money which, unlike bailout loans, will never be repaid.
3. Companies which have a line of credit with the bank will go bankrupt and lots of people would lose their job and will begin claiming unemployment benefits paid using tax money which, unlike bailout loans, will never be repaid.
You don't believe it but most companies work on credit, they borrow money to pay for goods and pay it back when they are paid using LCs an invoices as a guarantee;
4. The bank employees will lose their job and will begin claiming unemployment benefits also paid with tax money;
5. The bank shareholders, including investment funds, pension funds, and small investors. All those losses are transferred to the people, the small investors lose their savings, the investment funds will transfer the losses to their customers, and pension funds will either reduce pensions or, if they are state owned, they will cover the losses using tax money;
6. People who borrowed money from the bank to buy a house, a car, or whatever, will find themselves in a messy situation as the bank may try to close the loan and ask for a full payment in short notice;
7. Banks borrow money from each other, a bank failing may drag other banks down creating a cascade effect;
8. Lots of money will leave the economy for good. Because of the way fiat currencies work, a bank customer depositing 100k euro can result in the bank lending out or investing 900k euro. That money enters the real economy, and when the bank fails closing loans and selling its assets, all that money will just disappear from the economy;

All considered, it costs a lot less to taxpayers to lend bailout money to banks than letting them fail.

Trillion-euro global high-tech trade deal agreed

The #EU, the #US, #China and most World Trade Organization (WTO) members have agreed to eliminate custom duties on 201 high-tech products.

"This deal will cut costs for consumers and business – in particular for smaller firms" said Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström. "It also shows how we can use the EU’s #trade policy to encourage innovation in the IT sector – crucial for jobs and growth in Europe".

Here are the details: http://europa.eu/!ht69Nq

Statement of Objections on cross-border provision of pay-TV services in UK and Ireland

We have sent a Statement of Objections to Sky UK and six major US film studios: Disney, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros.

Our preliminary view is that each of the six studios and Sky UK have bilaterally agreed to put in place contractual restrictions that prevent Sky UK from allowing EU consumers located elsewhere to access, via satellite or online, pay-TV services available in the UK and Ireland.

If confirmed, each of the companies would have breached EU competition rules prohibiting anti-competitive agreements.

+Theo Hervij​ go throw a fit about this somewhere else. The European Union & the rest of the developed world understand that man made climate change caused by burning fossil fuels is 1 of, if not the biggest problem that we're facing today. Meanwhile, Americans & Russians are denying this & people like you will kill our planet &/or make our planet a fucked up place for our (((gr8) gr8) grand) children. U R yhe fucking problem, not thr solution!

Investment Plan for Europe already happening in some EU countries

Confirmation of the projects pre-financed or ”warehoused” by the EIB which will receive the backing of the EFSI guarantee. They announced several projects to be pre-financed in the context of the Investment Plan for Europe while the adoption of the EFSI Regulation was pending. Find the warehoused projects to receive the EU guarantee here http://europa.eu/!rG77cU  #EFSI #investEU

The lack of investment hurts growth and competitiveness. To put Europe firmly on the path of economic recovery (top priority of #TeamJunckerEU), our  Investment Plan for Europe has three objectives:

-removing obstacles to investment by deepening the single market,

-providing visibility and technical assistance to investment projects

-and making smarter use of new and existing financial resources
