    Economics and politics of airport expansion in Europe "Clearly, the presence of an airport in a region makes the region more prestigious, creates jobs and may have an impact on inward investment decisions. Yet the existence of many airports in overlapping catchment areas is evidence of shortcomings in resource allocation, leads to an increase in CO2 emissions, creates artificial demand and has a negative influence on the development of alternative modes of transport", says Jacek Krawczyk

    EIB and EESC presidents call for acceleration of investments in the EU. EIB president Werner Hoyer and EESC president Staffan Nilsson met in Luxembourg on 19 December. They called for accelerating investments in the EU to facilitate structural change, and to put the EU economy on the path to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, and strengthen EU competitiveness as defined in the Europe 2020 Strategy. Staffan Nilsson welcomed the focus on projects with the greatest impact in terms of growth, employment, economic cohesion and climate action. Both the EIB and the EESC agreed on the need to strengthen the EIB's relations with civil society: civil society, especially business groups, provides valuable input in exploring ways to develop SME policies because of its understanding of local problems, needs and expectations. The EIB would therefore welcome stronger links to the EESC in areas of common interest.
