This article is part of our special report Investment for regions.

In an interview with EURACTIV’s Jeremy Fleming, Markku Markkula talked about his new role as president of the Committee of the Regions and the importance of the regional input on the Juncker plan.

“We are having in mid-April in our plenary a special resolution on the Juncker Plan where we are putting all our concrete proposals”, Markkula said. “If we take stronger the perspective of the regions, how we can integrate better private investments, the knowledge coming from Universities, that’s our role – to get the regional voice heard”.
