Protection against dumped and subsidised imports from countries not members of the EU (A8-0182/2018 - Christofer Fjellner) CS  
 

Hlasoval jsem pro návrh modernizace nařízení týkajícího se ochrany před dumpingovým dovozem a o ochraně před dovozem subvencovaných výrobků ze třetích zemí. Cílem tohoto návrhu je přizpůsobit se výzvám globální ekonomiky 21. století a efektivněji reagovat v případech dumpingových dovozů ze zemí, kde dochází k distorzím na trhu se surovinami a energiemi. EU tímto nařízením bude lépe hájit zájmy evropských výrobců, dovozců a samozřejmě ve finále i spotřebitelů. Tyto zásahy narušují obchod, neboť ceny surovin neodráží běžné tržní nabídky a poptávky.

EU-Norway Agreement concerning additional trade preferences in agricultural products (A8-0126/2018 - Tiziana Beghin) CS  
 

Dnes jsem hlasoval pro dohodu mezi EU a Norskem o dodatečných obchodních preferencích pro zemědělské produkty z důvodu, že umožňuje stranám přezkoumat svoje obchodní vztahy a uzavřít biliární dohody upravující obchod se zemědělskými produkty. Obdobná dohoda již byla v minulosti uzavřena. Některé položky budou liberalizovány plně a u jiných se stanoví kvóty. Z dohody mohou EU producenti a zemědělci jen benefitovat.

EU-USA Air Transport Agreement (A8-0376/2017 - Theresa Griffin) CS  
 

Podpořil jsem přijetí Dohody o letecké dopravě mezi EU a Spojenými státy americkým, protože jejím cílem je vytvoření jednotného trhu s leteckou dopravou, v němž budou evropské a americké letecké společnosti moci poskytovat letecké služby bez jakéhokoli omezení a který bude zahrnovat domácí trhy obou stran. Dohoda má zajistit pokračování vysoké úrovně spolupráce a harmonizace mezi Spojenými státy a Evropskou unií v oblastech spadajících do oblasti působnosti dohody. Přiblížení obou systémů umožní výrazné úspory organizačních struktur, zdrojů, vzdělávacích programů, interních procesů a programů dohledu.

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
