Andi Cristea spune: ”Problema de substanță este că cea mai mare parte din fondurile Planului Juncker, 82% conform unor studii, au mers, fără rezerve, în vestul Europei, atât ca sume totale, cât și raportate la numărul de locuitori. O parte din acești bani au ajuns în Italia, Spania, Grecia și Portugalia, sub argumentul etern că aceste state au fost cândva lovite puternic de criza economică (criza a lovit în 2008, Planul Juncker a fost lansat în 2015). Vedem la finalul zilei că Planul Juncker nu a fost gândit pentru a crește coeziunea în UE. În același timp, faptul că banii au rămas preponderent în vestul bogat al Europei, nu arată decât că trenul acesta oricum nu oprea în stația noastră. Standardele duble la nivelul Uniunii Europene reprezintă o problemă serioasă, pentru că le întâlnim peste tot” External link

Il programma potrà essere utilizzato anche per garantire le acquisizioni di aziende in crisi da parte dei lavoratori dell'impresa stessa. Un importante successo ottenuto durante il negoziato - (\*) - è stato l'introduzione della possibilità di modulare il costo della garanzia per favorire investimenti in Paesi e in aree in difficoltà economica o in settori meno remunerativi come quello delle infrastrutture sociali. Per incoraggiare il rilancio degli investimenti pubblici, abbiamo previsto che i contributi degli Stati membri alle piattaforme di investimento e ai vari progetti che otterranno - ha concluso - la garanzia potranno essere esclusi dal computo del deficit strutturale ai fini del Patto di stabilità e crescita” External link

Fernando Sousa salientou: "No final, todos nós o que queremos é competitividade, e esta pode vir ou por aumento de produtividade ou cada vez mais, diria eu, por diferenciação. Esta transformação digital, se, por um lado, implica uma transformação de competências, por outro lado, é também uma oportunidade. É com esta transformação que nós temos a oportunidade de tornar a indústria mais atrativa, porque cria os empregos para os serviços e efetivamente damos melhor condições de trabalho, trabalhamos melhor. As pessoas não se sentem atraídas por estas e outras competências. Acho que efetivamente podemos e devemos usar esta mudança de paradigma como o fator de outra atra- tividade para as nossas empresas. Quanto aos recursos humanos, esse é claramente o maior desafio que todos nós enfrentamos. É tão difícil hoje em dia saber quais vão ser as competências técnicas específicas, que iremos de algum modo ter de dotar os nossos colaboradores de competências, se eles souberem aprender, para hoje e amanhã estarem preparados para o que quer que seja" External link

Oltre a rafforzare ulteriormente il sostegno alle piccole e medie imprese, alla ricerca, all’innovazione e alle infrastrutture sostenibili, con questo programma affronteremo anche l’enorme gap di infrastrutture sociali denunciato dal Rapporto Prodi qualche mese fa, garantendo la realizzabilità di progetti nel campo dell’ educazione , della salute e dell’ edilizia sociale. Dal punto di vista operativo, abbiamo voluto valorizzare l’importante ruolo già svolto dalle banche di promozione nazionale e dalle altre istituzioni nel finanziamento dei progetti di investimento, permettendo loro di accedere direttamente alla garanzia europea senza dover passare necessariamente per la Banca Europea degli Investimenti . Questo – spiega – consentirà una maggiore flessibilità nella gestione della garanzia e quindi maggiori possibilità di finanziamento dei progetti. Per evitare ingiuste penalizzazioni per i paesi con un rating più basso, nel nostro testo abbiamo chiarito che il prezzo della garanzia dovrà essere legato unicamente alla rischiosità dei progetti, e che condizioni particolari di favore potranno essere applicate per alcuni tipi di progetti e per paesi con un costo del denaro più alto perché sperimentano condizioni di stress sui mercati. Infine, abbiamo ottenuto che i contributi pubblici ai progetti e alle piattaforme di investimenti potranno essere esentati dal calcolo del deficit ai fini del Patto di Stabilità e Crescita. Ora aspettiamo che il Consiglio termini la sua lettura per iniziare il negoziato che contiamo di concludere entro la fine della legislatura e dare all’Europa un nuovo strumento per gli investimenti e la crescita ” External link
