Greece is the country that will benefit most, based on GDP, of all EU member-states from the Juncker Plan for growth.
“The plan is now set to trigger 283.7 euros in investments, representing 90% of the original target. The top five countries benefiting from these growth-focused investments are Greece, Estonia, Bulgaria, Portugal, and Spain,” the European Commission said in a tweet.
Moreover, the European Investment Bank approved 2.4bn euros in funding for Greece from the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
That is expected to trigger 9.2bn euros in investments in Greece.
