On 28th April, FIEC, represented by its Vice-President Guillermo Aparicio Torres, participated in a meeting organised by the European Commission (DG ECFIN) on the implementation of the Juncker Investment Plan. The meeting focused on implementing the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH), as well as the European Investment Project Portal, which will materialise the EU pipeline of projects which has been launched at the end of 2014.

This was another good opportunity for FIEC to meet the institutional key players in this field and recall the importance of investing into infrastructure, energy efficiency, education and training and SMEs. As regards the EIAH, the portal and the forthcoming European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI), the Commission insisted on the fact that these three elements of the Juncker Investment Plan are fully independent from each other. On whether the European Commission would provide a kind of "quality label” for projects presented in the future portal, the question remained open! All in all, the plan is expected to be operational by mid-2015.”
