cdH presents investment plan in Wallonia for €500 million a year
Alda Greoli is one of the three cdH ministers, in the Walloon government, to advocate an investment plan for the region in the national media.

The three cdH (Humanist Democratic Centre) ministers of the Walloon government each chose one publication to publish the Centrist investment plan for Wallonia on Wednesday. They value this at €500 million per year.

The Vice-president, Alda Greoli (dans L'Echo), and the ministers Carlo Di Antonio (the Sudpresse publications) and René Collin (Le Soir) say they are responding to the appeal by the Minister-President of the Walloon government, Willy Borsus (MR), by setting out their three investment priorities. These encompass three specific axes: transport (€350 million), energy transition (€100 million) and digital resources (€50 million).

By valuing the financial envelope for this at €500 million per year, the cdH is following the recommendations of the Office of Planning and Budget, which recommends an increase in public investment of 0.5% of GDP.

Besides Public-Private Partnerships, the cdH is expecting a European agreement to include a series of public investments within the Walloon finances. The Federal government is also injecting funds, to compensate for a deficit in Wallonia’s accounting in respect of federate entities and local authorities.
