In 2021 the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen introduced a new European strategy, the Global Gateway, that aims to to boost smart, clean and secure links in digital, energy and transport sectors and to strengthen health, education and research systems across the world. Between 2021 and 2027, the EU institutions and EU Member States will mobilise up to 300 billion Euros of investments in fields such as digital, climate and energy, transport, health, education and research. T
The Global Gateway will deliver sustainable and high-quality projects, taking into account the needs of partner countries and ensuring lasting benefits for local communities. This will allow EU’s partners to develop their societies and economies, but also create opportunities for the EU Member States’ private sector to invest and remain competitive, whilst ensuring the highest environmental and labour standards, as well as sound financial management.
