Investment is the key driver in the European Reform Agenda.

Investment means a better balance between stability and growth, a new approach to public and private partnerships, a more visionary idea of social and economic sustainability, a stronger committment to innovation and fairness.

As Europe speeds up on-going reforms and looks forward to new ones, the Rome Investment Forum 2015 intends to review the European Reform Agenda, promote a sense of urgency and concrete deliverables, build on a shared vision of a common future.

From “Finance for Growth” to “Investment for Growth”!
