IMI-Aktuell 2024/016

100 Mrd. EU-Fonds?

(10.01.2024)

Politico zufolge will Industriekommissar Thierry Breton Ende des kommenden Monats den Vorschlag für ein neues EU-Rüstungsinstrument vorlegen, von dem er sich augenscheinlich verspricht, erhebliche Summen zu mobilisieren: „He’s slated to present the European Defence Investment Program (EDIP) on February 27, a cash pot aimed at boosting joint weapons procurement and putting the EU on more of a war footing by ramping up domestic arms and ammunition production. ‘I believe we have to have a huge defense fund to help to accelerate, even probably in the amount of €100 billion,’ Breton, who’s also in charge of defense, said at an event hosted by the liberal Renew Europe group at the European Parliament.” (jw)
