European Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, is in the Netherlands today as part of his roadshow to promote the Investment Plan for Europe. He then travels to Bulgaria on Thursday 16 April and to Hungary on Friday 17 April. Vice-President Katainen will meet Heads and Members of Government, business leaders, SMEs, investors and students as part of the 28-country roadshow to promote and explain the €315 billion Investment plan. Vice-President Katainen said: “I am looking forward to this busy week on the road. The roadshows have already proved a great success as they allow me to meet a large numbers of stakeholders and answer questions on how the Investment Plan will work, and how it could benefit each Member State. On each roadshow, I learn something new and I get to visit some of the projects which already benefit from EU funding, which is very inspiring.”
