Long-term investments: Barriers and opportunities for regions and cities
Wednesday, 8th of March 2017, from 14.00 to 16.00, in the European Parliament, Brussels
Room JAN 6Q1
What are the challenges faced by the regional, local authorities as well as the private sectors regarding long-term investments? How can the EU help to overcome them?
This event will try and address these questions and will include presentations on key issues, followed by a debate featuring EU institutions, city politicians and financial experts on the current Eurostat rules and their impact on regional and local public investments in several sectors such as transport, energy efficiency and waste management.
It will be the occasion to better understand and explore possible avenues to transform current barriers into future opportunities for region and cities. A catalogue featuring examples of barriers experienced by all sectors will also be presented and distributed at the event.
