Thursday, 26 March 2015
Jyrki Katainen, the European Commission's Vice President for Jobs, Growth and Investment, is due to visit Bulgaria on April 16.
Katainen, also a former Finnish MP, will be in the Bulgarian capital Sofia as part of his Europe-wide tour promoting the EU Investment Plan that has become known as the "Juncker Plan" in the past few months.
The project launched by EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker envisages the unlocking of 315 billion euros over the next three years (2015-2017).
After being unveiled in the autumn of 2014, it has been approved by EU leaders and later by Finance Ministers of member states.
