Vienna, March 22- 23, 2012
One of the actions planned under the EU Strategy for the Danube Region is to “examine the feasibility of a Danube Investment Framework”. In this context, the Coordinator of the Priority Area “Institutional Capacity and Cooperation” organized on behalf of the European Commission, at Vienna, the first Danube Financing Dialogue.
This meeting aimed to bring together Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) from the whole Danube Region with International Financial Institutions and national funding sources. In this context, there were identified SME investment projects with a volume between 1 to 25 Mio.€ most relevant for the priorities of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region. The priorities are covering a wide range of fields such as transport, energy, culture, environment, technologies, education and security.
The Dialogue provided a platform for stimulating matchmaking of the SME’s financing needs and financing possibilities. As for the SMEs the Danube Financing Dialogue provides a unique opportunity to identify the most suitable financing sources in order to realize their investment project by meeting personally the representatives of international financial institutions.
