Construction 2020 needs political support

On 25 March EBC participated in the High-Level Strategic Forum on Construction 2020, promoted by DG GROW. The High-Level Forum presented the conclusions of the Thematic Groups about stimulating the investment conditions, improving human capital, enhancing resource-efficiency.
EBC has been supporting this initiative since its launch in 2012. The Latvian Presidency is doing a useful work for the construction sector. Despite these good intentions, EBC believes that without a full support of the Council and the coordination between Construction 2020 and the legislative initiatives of the European Commission, the plan will not produce the expected positive effects.
