More fresh public money necessary for success of Juncker’s investment package, stresses S&D Vice-Chair

Belgian MEP Kathleen van Brempt, Vice-Chair of the S&D Group in the European Parliament, talks to Hughes Belin about Jean-Claude Juncker’s proposal for a 3-year investment programme worth €315 billion.

The S&D Vice-Chair is convinced that Juncker’s investment package is “a good starting point” to jump-start Europe’s struggling economy and to “leave the austerity dogma behind“. However, it is absolutely necessary that Member States make their own contribution to the investment fund by putting up “fresh money”, stresses Van Brempt.

At the next European Council summit on 18 & 19 December, EU leaders are expected to approve Juncker’s €315 billion investment plan.

 “Fresh money from Member States needed for success of the Juncker package”, argues MEP Van Brempt
