In a position paper published on Monday, the Chamber of Commerce welcomes Minister Franz Fayot's (LSAP) roadmap to the economy of tomorrow, but points out some shortcomings.

Two weeks after the presentation of the roadmap Ons Wirtschaft vu muer (LSAP) by the Minister of Economy Franz FayotFranz Fayot, which is intended to map out the path towards the economy by 2025, the Chamber of Commerce published its position on Monday.

It pleads for a "real 'business plan' of concrete actions to be implemented in the coming months and years, accompanied by performance measures in the form of key indicators, a schedule of priority achievements to evaluate the timing and progress of projects and a precise multi-year financing plan to materialise the ambition", we read in this document of about ten pages published on its website and reproduced at the end of this article.

Some reservations

While the institution welcomes the Ons Wirtschaft vu muer approach and even announces that it "will invest, alongside the government and public authorities, in its future success, especially as some of the avenues are perfectly in line with the ideas for recovery that it put forward in July 2020", it has some reservations.

The roadmap presented on 21 June is intended to position the Luxembourg economy "to face future challenges" by 2025. Without a precise budget, the programme is structured around six key components and six pilot projects.
