(26 May 2020) – All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to a public consultation on the protection and facilitation of cross-border investment within the EU.
Private investment is essential to finance Europe’s economy and businesses. It contributes to the creation of jobs and to the diversification of services and products in our Single Market.
Mobilising private funding will be particularly important to cope with the negative economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Today’s public consultation invites EU citizens and other stakeholders to express, until 8 September, their views on the strengths or weaknesses of cross-border investing in the EU.
The aim is to assess the current framework of investment protection, including both substantive rules and dispute settlement mechanisms.
