Corruption and human rights in third countries (A8-0246/2017 - Petras Auštrevičius) NL  
 

De VVD is voorstander van een harde aanpak van corruptie in ontwikkelingslanden. De VVD is echter tegen het voorstel om bedrijven te verplichten tot country-to-country reporting . Dit zorgt voor administratieve rompslomp, remt economische groei en verstoort de concurrentieverhoudingen.

Conclusion of the EU-Cuba Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (Resolution) (A8-0233/2017 - Elena Valenciano) NL  
 

De VVD is van mening dat de verwijzing naar de bestedingsnorm voor ontwikkelingssamenwerking (0,7 % van het bnp) niet thuishoort in de resolutie over de overeenkomst inzake politieke dialoog en samenwerking tussen de EU en Cuba. De VVD steunt echter wel het uitgangspunt dat de Amerikaanse economische sancties tegen Cuba niet dienen te worden voortgezet, omdat activiteiten van Europese investeerders en bedrijven in Cuba hierdoor worden belemmerd. Derhalve heeft de VVD ingestemd met de resolutie over de overeenkomst inzake politieke dialoog en samenwerking tussen de EU en Cuba.

Limitation periods for traffic accidents (A8-0206/2017 - Pavel Svoboda) NL  
 

Alhoewel de VVD zich in principe kan vinden in de wens om enige harmonisatie op dit onderwerp tot stand te brengen, is het gedetailleerde en concrete voorstel in dit rapport te vergaand. De VVD-delegatie heeft zich derhalve onthouden.
