Written explanations of vote


Accessibility requirements for products and services (A8-0188/2017 - Morten Løkkegaard)


. – I voted in favour of this report, because as a Union we should significantly improve the life quality of disabled people. The people with disabilities need to have total and very easy access to products and services, like cultural life, transportation, internet access, bank transfers, and so on. I strongly believe that there must be no difference between the opportunities for people with or without disabilities.

EU-Chile Agreement on trade in organic products (A8-0257/2017 - Inmaculada Rodríguez-Piñero Fernández)


. – There is no doubt that the current agreement has worked very well since its entry into force in 2003. However, this agreement is outdated and does not meet the new requirements of trade policy, so its modernisation is necessary. I voted in favour of the report, because the updating of the Chile Agreement is a good chance to implement a more ambitious trade policy suitable for sustainable development.

Extension of the European statistical programme to 2020 (A8-0158/2017 - Roberto Gualtieri)


. – European statistics must be comprehensive, comparable, accurate and timely as possible, so the extension of the European Statistical Programme 2018-2020 is an important achievement. One of the main reasons to vote in favour of this report is that the new regulation encourages the further development of existing data collections, as well as new data collection in order to better cover asylum and manage migration.

European venture capital funds and European social entrepreneurship funds (A8-0120/2017 - Sirpa Pietikäinen)


. – Strengthening the role of European venture capital funds under the patronage of the European Securities and Markets Authority is a main point of creating an effective European capital market and the European venture capital fund market. The market for qualifying venture capital funds and qualifying social entrepreneurship funds should be opened up in order to increase scale effects, to reduce transaction and operational costs, to improve competition and to reinforce investor choice. That is why I voted in favour of this report.

Establishing an instrument contributing to stability and peace (A8-0261/2017 - Arnaud Danjean)


. – I voted in favour because these measures aim to bring a more peaceful and inclusive sustainable development of societies in partner countries by enhancing their capacity building through different types of both military activities and improvements. Furthermore, the proposal stresses the importance for third countries to manage the crisis on their own by strengthening effectiveness, ensuring the respect of the rule of law, good governance and enhanced civilian control. The EU’s financial assistance provided to security forces of the country concerned will be an important complement to the existing resources that the Community is able to mobilise.

A new skills agenda for Europe (A8-0276/2017 - Martina Dlabajová, Momchil Nekov)


. – Date shows that by 2025, 49% of all job openings in the EU will require high-level qualifications, 40 % – medium-level qualifications, while only 11 % – low-level or no qualifications. That is why skills are from high importance to the future competitiveness of our economy. The lack of basic skills is a problem of around 17 million citizens of the Union. I supported this report because it aims to make better use of the skills available and to equip people with the right skills - to help them adapt and anticipate change and find quality jobs and improve their life chances.

Multilateral Agreement on the establishment of a European Common Aviation Area (ECAA) (A8-0260/2017 - Roberts Zīle)


. – I voted in favour to the Multilateral Agreement on the establishment of a European Common Aviation Area (ECAA) because I believe it creates an open framework accessible for European neighbour countries which wish to fully integrate into the European aviation community. This means that the Western Balkan States individually and step by step integrate into the European aviation market on the basis of the transitional arrangements which are part of the Agreement. Once the Agreement is concluded, assessments of its implementation progress under the first phase of the transition arrangements can be formalised for each partner country. This should open up the way for the ECAA partner countries to further advance on their path towards full application of the Agreement.

Subjecting acryloylfentanyl to control measures (A8-0284/2017 - Brice Hortefeux)


. – I agree with the recommendation of the rapporteur that the draft Council implementing decision has to be approved. I voted in favour to ‘Subjecting acryloylfentanyl to control measures’ because according to the statistics since April 2016 forty-seven deaths associated with the substance have been reported by three Member States, together with 20 acute intoxications apparently due to acryloylfentanyl. I believe in these results and the danger consequences the substance causes that is why there must be measures of control.

EU political relations with India (A8-0242/2017 - Cristian Dan Preda)


. – I believe that there should be supported for a stronger and deeper partnership between the EU and India rooted in their powerful political, economic, social and cultural links. The relationship between the EU and India has grown significantly since 1993. The partnership between the EU and India has not yet reached its full potential. I voted in favour because I think stronger political engagement is needed on both sides to make the relationship more dynamic and valuable for the challenges the two partners face at regional and international level.

Mobilisation of the EU Solidarity Fund to provide assistance to Italy (A8-0280/2017 - Giovanni La Via)


. – The Commission proposes to mobilize the European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) to grant financial assistance relating to earthquakes that took place between August 2016 and January 2017 in the regions of Abruzzo, Lazio, Marcha and Umbria of Italy. The European Union Solidarity Fund aims to enable the Union to respond in a rapid, efficient and flexible manner to emergency situations in order to show solidarity with the population of regions struck by natural disasters. I believe we should give assistance to this Member State in the event of a major natural disaster with serious repercussions on living conditions, that’s why my vote was in favour.
