Frans Timmermans, first Vice President of the European Commission, was the guest at the second Euranet Plus Big Crunch TV debate entitled “EU INVESTMENT PLAN: IN EUROPE WE TRUST?”
Following up on the successful Big Crunch EU Election Presidential Debate 2014 in April, Euranet Plus once again went beyond the Brussels bubble with a two-part Big Crunch Debate on December 11.
In part one of the debate, in English, Frans Timmermans faced off with six members of the Euranet Plus network at the European Parliament in Brussels. Via satellite or telephone, journalists based in Croatia, Germany, Slovenia, Italy, Greece and Poland asked the first vice president of the European Commission questions on issues ranging from investment funds and better regulation to the investment gap in the euro area.
Part two of the debate, in French, saw Timmermans joined by a top industry executive from France and a director from the French SME sector. The discussion focused on the daily challenges faced by French industry and private investors, and was hosted by BFM Business TV.
