Juncker’s investment plan a step in the right direction

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

The American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) welcomes and supports the investment plan package that was announced this week by Jean-Claude Juncker.

‘This plan sends a signal to the global marketplace that Europe is serious about fixing its economy and putting it back on track. Europe needs to regain the trust of not only global investors, but also our citizens. This plan will help demonstrate that Europe is committed to boosting growth, delivering much-needed jobs and can compete in an increasingly more competitive world.’ said Karl Cox, Chair, AmCham EU. He went on to say, ‘We need to make Europe more attractive to investors and we think this plan is a step in the right direction, but more structural reforms are needed to bring about the confidence those investors are seeking.’


AmCham EU speaks for American business committed to Europe on trade investment and competitiveness issues. It aims to ensure a growth orientated business and investment climate in Europe. AmCham EU facilitates the resolution of transatlantic issues that impact business and play a role in creating better understanding of EU & US positions on business matters.
