BusinessEurope welcomes Commission Communication on long-term financing

Following the release today of the European Commission’s communication on long-term financing of the European economy, BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: “Encouraging long-term investment, through improving access to finances for businesses is a key challenge for Europe, particularly in light of the need to reindustrialise our economy. We welcome many of the initiatives set out in the Commission’s communication, including unlocking alternatives to bank finance, such as equity, corporate bonds and venture capital, and are ready to work with the Commission in translating them into concrete steps forward to boost business investment, growth and jobs.”
