The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), the core of the Juncker Plan, has mobilized almost €393 billion of investment, according to April figures from the European Investment Bank (EIB) – the Commission’s strategic partner on the Investment Plan for Europe. Operations approved under EFSI so far represent a total financing volume of €72.8bn in all member states. The EIB has approved 524 infrastructure projects supported by EFSI for €53.8bn, which should generate €246.6bn of additional investments. The European Investment Fund, part of the EIB Group, has approved 554 financing agreements for small and medium businesses worth €19bn, which should generate €146bn of additional investments and benefit 945,000 companies.
