2016 Report on Turkey (A8-0234/2017 - Kati Piri)

06-07-2017

. ‒ I voted in favour of fostering good relations between the EU and Turkey. Several pieces of Turkish legislation that were adopted recently regarding the rule of law and fundamental rights were not in line with European standards. The EU should seek not only to improve its relations with Turkey but also to strengthen the legislation there to bring it into line with European standards.

Setting up a special committee on terrorism, its responsibilities, numerical strength and term of office (B8-0477/2017)

06-07-2017

. ‒ I voted in favour of setting up a special committee on terrorism, and determining its responsibilities, numerical strength and term of office. The committee will examine how Member States can improve the exchange of information between law enforcement authorities, and make information systems and communication within the EU speedier in order to strengthen Union action against terrorism and protect our citizens.

European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD) and establishing the EFSD Guarantee and the EFSD Guarantee Fund (A8-0170/2017 - Eduard Kukan, Doru-Claudian Frunzulică, Eider Gardiazabal Rubial)

06-07-2017

I voted in favour of amendment 106 to the report. The report aims to secure funds to be used in investments starting in Africa and the EU’s Eastern and Southern Neighborhood.

Permitted uses of certain works and other protected subject-matter for the benefit of persons who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled (A8-0097/2017 - Max Andersson)

06-07-2017

I voted in favour of the report to facilitate the use of certain copyright protected content, without the authorisation of the right holder, for the benefit of persons who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print disabled. It provides for a mandatory exception and states the specific permitted uses by the beneficiary persons and authorised entities.

Double taxation dispute resolution mechanisms in the EU (A8-0225/2017 - Michael Theurer)

06-07-2017

I voted in favour of the report to improve the mechanisms behind preventing the cross-border occurrence of double taxation. Double taxation occurs when taxes are imposed multiple times due to the flow of money being spread across multiple borders. The traditional methods of resolving disputes no longer fully fit with the complexity and risks of the current global tax environment.

EU action for sustainability (A8-0239/2017 - Seb Dance)

06-07-2017

I voted in favour of the report to develop and strengthen the sustainable development framework of the EU. The report aims to work towards human dignity, stability, a healthy planet, fair and resilient societies and prosperous economies. This Agenda is based on a global partnership involving all stakeholders, requires mobilisation of all means of implementation and a strong follow-up and review mechanism to ensure progress and accountability.

Promoting cohesion and development in the outermost regions of the EU (A8-0226/2017 - Younous Omarjee)

06-07-2017

I voted in favour of strengthening cohesion between the EU and the outermost regions of the EU. The European Union has nine outermost regions, which are an integral part of its territory and must apply its laws and obligations. The report identifies both the responsibilities of the Union and of the Member States concerned, as regards a solid and sustainable development of the EU outermost regions.

Agreement to amend the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer, adopted in Kigali (A8-0237/2017 - Kateřina Konečná)

05-07-2017

I voted in favour of the report to adopt an amendment adding a step-wise reduction of the consumption and production of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to the control measures of the Montreal Protocol, with a view to reducing the contribution of these substances to climate change. Although not ozone-depleting, these greenhouse gases were mainly introduced to replace ozone-depleting substances that are phased out under the Montreal Protocol.

Convention on long-range transboundary air pollution to abate acidification, eutrophication and ground-level ozone (A8-0241/2017 - Adina-Ioana Vălean)

05-07-2017

I voted in favour of the report to heighten the level of protection of human health and the environment from transboundary air pollution. To improve air quality on the local, national and regional levels, member States of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) have been working together to gradually reduce and prevent air pollution in the region.

Conclusion of the EU-Cuba Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (Consent) (A8-0232/2017 - Elena Valenciano)

05-07-2017

I gave my consent to back the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement between the EU and Cuba. The agreement must lead to a democratic transition in the country and should effectively contribute to the improvement of human rights. The EU urges the Cuban Government to align its human rights policy with international standards defined in the Charters, declarations and international instruments to which Cuba is a signatory.
