Poland is sixth country to contribute national funds to EFSI
On 21 April 2015, Poland announced that it will contribute €8 billion to projects benefiting from finance by the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) via its National Promotional Bank and another public institution. This makes Poland the sixth country after Germany, Spain, France, Italy and Luxembourg, to contribute to the EFSI even before it has been formally established.
Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, European Commissioner responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, was pleased about this announcement and said that together with the EP Parliamentary Committees' vote on EFSI and the EIB announcement that the first projects and transactions earmarked for benefitting from an EU budget guarantee under the EFSI had been approved, this was "a very good week for investments in jobs and growth in Europe".
