(Reuters) - The European Union has drawn up a list of almost 2,000 projects worth 1.3 trillion euros (1.02 trillion pounds) as potential candidates for an investment plan aimed to revive the continent's stagnating economy, according to an EU document seen by Reuters.

"In total, almost 2,000 projects were identified with a total investment cost of 1,300 billion euros of which 500 billion (are) to be realized within the next three years," said the document, which will be discussed by EU finance ministers on Tuesday.
