Other parliamentary activities 

Written explanations of vote 
Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Distributed ledger technologies and blockchains: building trust with disintermediation (B8-0397/2018)  
 

I voted in favour of this report because emerging technologies such as blockchain and DLTs have the potential to improve EU economic competitiveness, while creating a trusted social and economic environment for citizens and companies.
Parliament through this report shows its open-mindedness towards this new technology, carefully acknowledging related challenges, and asks the European Commission and EU Member States to make use of such tools in our public sector, boost Digital Single Market efforts and embrace innovation-friendly policies, but also provide legal certainty and long-term perspectives to EU investors and entrepreneurs.

Three-dimensional printing: intellectual property rights and civil liability (A8-0223/2018 - Joëlle Bergeron)  
 

. ‒ The high-potential 3D printing technology is no longer captive in a closed market. This opens the door for many use cases, benefitting businesses and private users alike. Similarly, it provides numerous advantages across industries. For SMEs, it may decrease significantly the cost of labour and offers flexibility in design, whereas for large companies the footprint of the industrial additive manufacturing system is much lower than the traditional one. I therefore welcome this report that offers clear recommendations to the European Commission on how to further facilitate transition towards legal certainty while stimulating innovation and growth in the EU.

EU-Australia Framework Agreement (A8-0110/2018 - Francisco José Millán Mon)  
 

. ‒ I welcome this agreement, which establishes a comprehensive framework for enhanced bilateral cooperation between the EU and Australia. We now have the right legal basis for broadening our bilateral relationship by building on shared values and covering policy areas such as the environment, climate change, energy, education, culture, health, labour, disaster management, fisheries and maritime affairs, transport, legal cooperation, and combating money laundering and terrorist financing, organised crime and corruption.
The framework agreement also contains basic provisions on economic and trade cooperation (including on trade and investment related areas, agricultural trade, sanitary and phytosanitary issues etcetera), creating the conditions for negotiation of a fully fledged free-trade agreement between the EU and Australia. It is important that such negotiations be launched before the summer of 2018.

Written questions 
Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
