Written explanations of vote


Rates of value added tax applied to books, newspapers and periodicals (A8-0189/2017 - Tom Vandenkendelaere)


. – The digital technologies are changing our life every single day. Most people are reading books, newspapers and magazines online instead of buying paper copies. So applying a double standard on the price of one edition, just because you buy it online, is not acceptable. I supported the report because proposes to set all electronically supplied services on equal footing with their physical equivalents, which is another step forward in implementing the Digital Single Market Strategy.

Internet connectivity for growth, competitiveness and cohesion: European gigabit society and 5G (A8-0184/2017 - Michał Boni)


. – I believe that the timely deployment of 5G would boost economic growth and employment for all fields of European society. This report highlights how to achieve not only a digital transformation, but a successful digital revolution. I find the development of digital infrastructure crucial for our competitiveness as it supports businesses in expanding and helps employees acquire the right skills for success in the 21st century. This digital revolution will play an essential role in the implementation of the Digital Single Market and achieving the EU’s global goals. That is why I voted in favour.

Protection of vulnerable adults (A8-0152/2017 - Joëlle Bergeron)


. – Unfortunately, there are a number of people who suffer from certain health problems which cause limitation of their autonomy. Vulnerable adults have their rights and needs as do all other European citizens. This report proposes the setting up of a harmonised network of rules and measures in all of the Member States to provide adequate protection and that is why I supported it.

Introduction of temporary autonomous trade measures for Ukraine (A8-0193/2017 - Jarosław Wałęsa)


. – In the past years Ukraine has faced unprecedented challenges, both political and economic. The European Union has always been supportive of the process of stabilisation of Ukraine. So the development of closer economic relations between the EU and Ukraine is a logical consequence. I supported this report because it shows a proper balance between the interests of both sides.

Uniform format for visas (A8-0028/2016 - Sylvia-Yvonne Kaufmann)


. – I voted in favour of this report. The agreement on the uniform format for visas will not only contribute to ensuring our internal security and protecting our borders, but will also improve the control of migration processes. Ensuring the security of travel and identity documents is a very important factor in combating travel document fraud.

Multiannual Framework for the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights for 2018-2022 (A8-0177/2017 - Angelika Mlinar)


. – In the next four years the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has to deal with eight huge thematic areas. This Agency will be responsible not only for the protection of personal data, but also for highly important issues such as migration, asylum and integration of refugees and migrants. Considering this I voted in favour to the report of Ms Mlinar and her recommendation that the procedures for the governance and the functioning of the Agency should be improved.

Digitising European industry (A8-0183/2017 - Reinhard Bütikofer)


. – The digitalisation of the European industries is essential for improving our competitiveness and should be a priority for all Member States. I voted in favour of this report, because it proposes boosting Europe’s digital innovation capacities through partnerships in digital technologies, value chains, digital innovation hubs in all regions and prioritising standards.

The right funding mix for Europe’s regions: balancing financial instruments and grants in EU cohesion policy (A8-0139/2017 - Andrey Novakov)


. – We are seeking the right balance between what banks can do – in terms of loans, guarantees, banking business etc. – and what we want to do in terms of cohesion – socioeconomic and territorial cohesion in regions throughout Europe. Loans, business loans that have to be repaid, can be only part of the solution. Throughout the social domain, projects that have to be helped from the ground up are legion. There is no market mechanism that can do this job alone. The report sheds light in this regard.

Future perspectives for technical assistance in cohesion policy (A8-0180/2017 - Ruža Tomašić)


. – I believe that financial instruments can complement very effectively grant funding, as the former are able to attract additional financial support where needed. Their added value should be especially appreciated in areas such as research and SMEs. I believe, however, that grants should remain at the basis of cohesion policy in the post 2020 financial framework. They are a proven and good base for public investment in infrastructure, the environment and social investment. In order to find the most suitable combination of grants with loans and guarantees in the future, a top-down approach should be avoided, but rather to be flexible and allow local and regional authorities to choose the best form of support offered based on local conditions. And it is precisely the local conditions and the specificity of the individual regions that should be decisive for the objectives of supporting cohesion policy projects. Europe’s regions need more trust.

Cross-border portability of online content services in the internal market (A8-0378/2016 - Jean-Marie Cavada)


. – European citizens want visible and quick results from our work. This regulation is a concrete response from the European Parliament to the citizens, but it is also a promise that I have made to our voters. In 2018, every European will be able to use his or her subscription to books, music, movies, serials, or sports broadcasts wherever he or she travels in the European Union without any content restrictions, without having any limitations on the number of devices or their functionality service. And most importantly, at no extra cost. This is a step forward in ensuring a single digital market for all Europeans. That is exactly what I thank the rapporteur and my colleagues with whom we have worked on this regulation in the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection for. However, in order to have a genuine and functional single digital market, we must continue to work with the same and, I would even say, have a quicker determination on other dossiers, such as those on privacy and personal data in electronic communications, The Electronic Communications Code, the Digital Content and Digital Services Directive, and the Commission’s approach to cyber security and online platforms.
