Other parliamentary activities 

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

EU-Uzbekistan comprehensive agreement (A8-0149/2019 - David McAllister)  
 

The Cooperation Agreement between the EU and Uzbekistan will strengthen the partiesʼ relations on the basis of common values and recognise Uzbekistan’s role as a significant cultural and political bridge between Europe and Asia. In addition, this agreement will support Uzbekistan’s political and social rights. It will pressure the Uzbek Government into ensuring that human rights defenders, civil society, international monitors and human rights organisations can work freely in a legal and politically secure environment. I therefore support this report calling for it.

Law applicable to the third-party effects of assignments of claims (A8-0261/2018 - Pavel Svoboda)  
 

. ‒ I voted in favour of the amendments presented in the report on the law applicable to the third—party effects of assignments of claims. The report shows the improved version of the proposal for a regulation. It gives a more detailed explanation on the proposal, which is crucial for the internal markets well-functioning but also for the conflict-of-law rules in the Member States. It is important to encourage cross-border investment in the European Union and facilitate access to finance for firms, including SMEs.

EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (A8-0053/2019 - David Martin)  
 

It is of great importance that the EU continues to lead an open and rule-based trading system and therefore I welcome the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement. Singapore is EU’s largest partner within the Southeast Asian countries and over 10 000 European companies have their regional offices in the country. A successful conclusion of the EU Singapore agreement will remove all tariffs within five years and open up new opportunities for European producers, workers and consumers, while at the same time obtaining high social and environmental standards. This is why this deal is crucial for both parties.

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
