Pjan pluriennali għas-sajd li jisfrutta l-istokkijiet tal-ħut tal-qiegħ fil-Punent tal-Mediterran (A8-0005/2019 - Clara Eugenia Aguilera García) EN  
 

. ‒ I abstained in the vote on this report as a whole. The Western Mediterranean is one of the most developed fishery sub-regions in the Mediterranean, accounting for around 31% of total landings in that area. Demersal fisheries in the basin have a high commercial value and are currently managed through national management plans. The new regulation, which affects fleets, mainly trawlers, from Italy, France and Spain, provides for postponing the achievement – expected in 2020 – of maximum sustainable yield (MSY) within five years from the entry into force of the plan, taking into account socioeconomic aspects.

It will extend the scope of the current rules to motorways and other primary roads beyond the trans-European transport network (TEN-T).

Prodott tal-Pensjoni Personali pan-Ewropew (A8-0278/2018 - Sophia in 't Veld) EN  
 

. ‒ I voted in favour of this report as a whole. This is a voluntary scheme, with strong consumer protection that has nothing to do with the first pillar (public pensions). The third pillar already exists in the Member State but it represents currently an obstacle for the mobility of workers because it is not portable. One of the features of pan-European personal pension products (PEPPs) is their portability. The regulation introduces also the basic PEPP with the same features all over the EU and with very simple characteristics that do not require financial knowledge for being understood. The regulation introduces also a cap on fees that represents an important achievement in terms of consumer protection.
