Juncker Plan in Romania, up-to-date situation of investment efficiency ranking

de Victor Bratu , 24.3.2019

Projects in Romania have received funding of a total of EUR 676 million from the European Fund for Strategic Investments (FEIS), according to a report released on Thursday by the European Commission’s Representation.

These FEIS projects would generate EUR 2.6 billion of investment, according to the EC.

Ranking of generated investments related to GDP – 21st position

By the value of these further investments related to GDP, Romania ranks 21th in the EU ranking.

The value and economic impact of the Romanian projects for attracting resources from the so-called “Junker Investment Plan” are much lower compared to the situation in other sister states from the former communist bloc.

Bulgaria, for example, ranks 3rd in the ranking of attracted investments relative to GDP:

  • projects worth EUR 456 million
  • investments that will be attracted as a result of FEIS projects implemented – EUR 2.388 billion

Greece ranks 1st, followed by Estonia, and Poland ranks 7th:

  • Country           EIB financing (million euro)    generated investment (million euro)   generated investment ranking related to GDP

Efficiency ranking – 22nd position

However, if we make a ranking by the efficiency of these funds, Romania ranks 22nd, with EUR 3.89 generated by additional investments for every euro attracted through FEIS projects:

*

  • BEI financing EUR 676 million           expected to generate EUR 2.6 billion total investment
  • Romania ranks now 21st in terms of investment corresponding to FEIS related to GDP
  • 29 projects and agreements for SMEs           16,090 SMEs that will benefit from the access to financing
  • EUR 315 billion – In July, Juncker plan exceeded the initial objective, which was set to achieve investment amounted to this value
  • our next objective is to reach investment amounting to EUR 500 billion across Europe by the end of 2020

*

Examples of FEIS beneficiary projects

Transgaz Brua

  • funding supported by FEIS: EUR 100 million
  • the amount would generate total investments of EUR 500 million

Transgaz is the Romanian national natural gas transportation company. Under the Investment Plan, EIB grants a EUR 100 million loan to build a new European gas transport corridor.

The objective of the project is to increase the security of gas supply and reduce the energy dependency by diversifying sources and supply routes.

The project also benefits from a EUR 179 million financing under the Europe Interconnection Mechanism.

Important: it has started following the European Commission’s steady pressures, given that it is part of a broad European project.
