More than 300 billion euros worth of investment will become available when President Juncker’s European Fund for Strategic Investments becomes operational. Blue business will be very well placed to apply and I encourage you to apply.Just last week, the EIB approved financing for the construction of new offshore windfarms, as part of President Juncker’s Investment Plan.’
