The investment challenge in the EU: How can EU public policy help mobilising public and private resources?

Irene Tinagli, Member of the European Parliament and Chair of the Economic & Monetary Affairs Committee at the European Parliament


In our third event of the series, Ms Irene Tinagli will held a lecture on ‘The investment challenge in the EU: How can EU public policy help mobilising public and private resources?’.Next Generation EU offers an extraordinary and unprecedented opportunity to deploy resources sustaining the recovery and preparing the Union for the future, by addressing the major challenges of our times. These important resources, however, are far from being enough. According to many estimates, the EU faces relevant investment gaps in many sectors to reach the objectives it has set for itself, in particular as regards the digital and ecological transitions. To cope with these investment gaps, both public and private resources are needed. As regards the former, we will need to discuss what the most suited post-pandemic fiscal framework is for the EU, once the general escape clause is deactivated, taking into account that public spending can serve both as direct investment, and as enabler of further private investment. As regard the latter, banking, and the financial sector in general, play a pivotal role. Therefore, during this lecture, we will see how public policy at EU level and how EU legislation is crucial in helping mobilizing private resources. Some fundamental legislative packages are coming up (e.g. Basel transposition, Solvency, CMU, sustainable finance legislation), and they can have a strong influence for the future of investments in the EU.
