    Climate change is a matter of urgency and demands a green shift in our economies. To achieve the EU's climate targets, a profound modernisation of the capital stock is needed. This entails a massive expansion of public investments. The need for an EU-level investment fund to finance the green transition is also a matter of economic strength and sustainable competitiveness. One central element of closing the financing gap is an investment friendly reform of the EU fiscal rules. While the reform process is still ongoing and is supposed to be finished by the end of this legislature, it is already clear that the fiscal space for public investments at national level will not significantly increase with the reform.

    Composition of group

    The objective of this Information Report is to investigate the situation of the CSOs of the ASEAN region. Due to the fact that the trade and sustainable development chapters of all trade agreements must be monitored by the DAGs of the given country, we have to be prepared for this task. There are two functioning DAGs from the ASEAN region (Singapore and Vietnam) at the moment but there needs to be an assessment of the CSO organizations of the other countries.
