The Investment Plan for Europe, also known as the “Juncker Plan”, has three objectives: removing obstacles to investment; providing visibility and technical assistance to investment projects; and making better use of financial resources.
The Juncker Plan supports the €18 million loan of the European Investment Bank (EIB) to the Bulgarian Software Group, which helps financial and telecom operators introduce digital services. In addition, today the EIB signed a €20 million loan to the financial institution Raiffeisen Leasing Bulgaria for the support of 300 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
As of February 2019, the Juncker Plan had mobilised an additional 380 billion in Europe, including 2.2 billion in Bulgaria, with 842,000 companies benefiting from better access to finance.
