What are the main achievements of the CMU initiative so far? Can the initial objectives of the CMU (further diversification of the financing of EU enterprises, providing new investment opportunities…) be fully achieved with the current action plan and if not what are the reasons? What are the main issues and obstacles that need to be overcome for significant progress to be made?
What is the way forward for the CMU in the coming 5 years? What should be the main areas of focus? Do the objectives of the CMU or the current action plan need reviewing, restructuring or refocusing? How can the political and industry commitment for the project be increased?
