A public hearing on how to improve access to finance for SMEs will take place on 28 June. It will gather stakeholders from SMEs and the financial community.
In December 2011, the European Commission presented a strategy to promote better access to finance for SMEs thanks to a specific EU action plan. This plan includes an increasing financial support from the EU budget and the European Investment Bank as well as a proposal for a regulation setting uniform rules for the marketing of venture capital funds.
The European Economic and Social Committee will adopt an opinion on the Commission proposals. This public hearing will feed into the reflexion.
