Michel announced his plans in the studios of the Francophone public broadcaster RTBF, in the programme "Jeudi en prime".
"I think we have to get things moving to create a national pact for strategical investments. Between 2017 and 2030, we would like to invest several billions of euros. We should get to work", Michel explained. It should be a win-win situation as jobs will be created.
Apart from the private sector, the different governments will have to do its share as well. Therefore, spendings cuts will be needed, and choices will have to be made, Michel added. The PM also wants to avoid that a future (different) government will turn back the clock, by working with a special commission.
