Question for written answer E-004682-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nadja Hirsch (ALDE)

 Subject:  Lack of EFSI projects in Germany
 Answer in writing 

With an estimated EUR 335 billion, the European Investment Plan EFSI is exceeding its own target. However, with only EUR 5.5 billion worth of approved investments, Germany is falling far short of expectations. The projected investment volume of EUR 23.2 billion has thus not even come to close to materialising. Even with estimated follow-up investments of EUR 26.442 billion, Germany is not performing well. Having only concluded 82 deals, Germany comes 25th out of the 28 EU Member States.

1. What was the approval rate for projects put forward by Germany (and please classify the projects by area)?

2. Why were the projects proposed rejected?

3. If the rate of rejection was not high, why does the Commission believe that so few projects were proposed by Germany?
