Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

In such cases, it shall inform the European Parliament and the Council of the reasons for that suspension or cancellation.

Justification

In view of consistence, the text is changed back to the wording of the previous Decisions of the European Parliament and of the Council on providing macro-financial assistance (including the recent Decision (EU) 2018/598 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 April 2018 providing further macro-financial assistance to Georgia).

OJ L 218, 14.8.2013, p. 15


EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The EU’s macro-financial assistance (MFA) is an exceptional emergency instrument aimed at addressing severe balance-of-payment difficulties in third countries. This is the fourth time that the Commission proposes an MFA operation since the onset of the crisis in 2014. This time, the Commission proposes EUR 1 billion to be disbursed as medium- to long-term loans, to help the country to cover part of its external financing needs for late 2018 and early 2019, namely in reducing the economy’s short-term balance-of-payment and fiscal vulnerabilities. The assistance is planned to be disbursed in two loan instalments.

The EU assistance is intended also to provide incentives to step up Ukraine's reform efforts which is done by agreeing with the Ukrainian authorities a Memorandum of Understanding setting out the supporting policy measures. These measures are conditional for the disbursement of the funds.

In the context of the first three MFA operations, Ukraine has fulfilled most of the policy measures that were jointly agreed between the Commission and the Ukrainian authorities. A total of EUR 2.8 billion has been disbursed. However, four of the 21 policy measures, including two anti-corruption measures that were agreed under the previous programme (MFA III) were not implemented by the time when the availability of the funds expired. Therefore in January 2018, Commission cancelled the third tranche of MFA III worth EUR 600 million. These measures will be reflected in the conditions under the current MFA set out in the Memorandum of Understanding, taking into account the developments that have taken place since January 2018.

Despite the improvement of the economic situation since 2015, a number of vulnerabilities remain due to the country's high dependency on commodity exports, the slower-than-expected replenishment of its international reserves and its elevated external indebtedness. The unstable domestic political environment and a continued threat of intensification of tensions in the Eastern part of the country are downside risks that could weigh on the still timid recovery.

In this context, Ukraine made its official request for MFA assistance on 29 November 2017.

Commission proposal follows closely the Joint Declaration by the European Parliament and the Council, adopted together with the Decision No 778/2013/EU providing further macro-financial assistance to Georgia, in which co-legislators established the main principles and considerations that should guide the process of granting macro-financial assistance.

The proposal includes a sunset clause. The MFA would be made available for two and a half years, starting from the first day after the entry into force of the Memorandum of Understanding. The Commission’s proposal is accompanied by an ex-ante evaluation statement.

Conclusion

In light of the above considerations, your rapporteur takes the view that the European Parliament should agree with the Commission’s proposal to provide macro-financial assistance to Ukraine.

Your rapporteur emphasizes that the disbursement of each instalment should be based on fulfilment of clearly defined policy measures and respect of the political pre-conditions to the EU’s MFA (effective democratic mechanisms including a multi-party parliamentary system and the rule of law and guarantee the respect for human rights). These conditions should be articulated clearly in the Memorandum of Understanding, including the anti-corruption measures that were not met under MFA III.

Your rapporteur also emphasizes the powers of the European Parliament as budgetary authority and reminds that in order for Parliament to follow the implementation of the assistance, Commission should regularly inform Parliament of developments relating to it and provide the relevant documents.


ANNEX

Joint statement by Parliament, the Council and the Commission

The Parliament, the Council and the Commission recall that a pre-condition for granting macro-financial assistance is that the beneficiary country respects effective democratic mechanisms – including a multi-party parliamentary system – and the rule of law, and guarantees respect for human rights.

The Commission and the European External Action Services shall monitor the fulfilment of this pre-condition throughout the life-cycle of the Union's macro-financial assistance.

In light of the unfulfilled conditions on the fight against corruption and the related cancellation of the third instalment of the previous programme of macro-financial assistance under Decision (EU) 2015/601, the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission underline that further macro-financial assistance will be conditional on progress in the fight against corruption in Ukraine. To that effect, the economic policy and financial conditions of the Memorandum of Understanding to be agreed between the European Union and Ukraine shall include inter alia obligations to strengthen the governance, the administrative capacities and the institutional set-up in particular for the fight against corruption in Ukraine, notably regarding a verification system for asset declarations, the verification of companies’ beneficial ownership data and a well-functioning specialised anti-corruption court in line with the recommendations of the Venice Commission. Conditions on combating money laundering and tax avoidance shall also be considered. In line with Article 4(4), where the conditions are not met, the Commission shall temporarily suspend or cancel the disbursement of the macro-financial assistance.

Further to regularly informing the European Parliament and the Council of developments relating to the assistance and providing them with relevant documents, the Commission shall, upon each disbursement, report publicly on the fulfilment of all economic policy and financial conditions linked to this disbursement, in particular those concerning the fight against corruption.

The European Parliament, the Council and the Commission recall that this macro-financial assistance to Ukraine shall contribute to values shared with the European Union, including sustainable and socially responsible development leading to employment creation and poverty reduction, and a commitment to a strong civil society. The Commission shall accompany the draft Commission Implementing Decision approving the Memorandum of Understanding with an analysis of the expected social impact of the macro-financial assistance. In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011 this analysis will be submitted to the Member State Committee and shall be made available to the Parliament and the Council through the register of committee proceedings.


OPINION of the Committee on Foreign Affairs (16.5.2018)

for Committee on International Trade

on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council providing further macro-financial assistance to Ukraine

(COM(2018)0127 – C8-0108/2018 – 2018/0058(COD))

Rapporteur for opinion: Michael Gahler

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

Following a request from the Ukrainian government, the European Commission has proposed the provision of a new Macro-Financial Assistance (MFA) programme to Ukraine based on Article 212 of the TFEU, for an amount of up to EUR 1 billion to be provided in the form of medium- to long-term loans in two tranches.

The proposed new MFA operation would complement the preceding three MFA operations, totaling EUR 3.4 billion, that have been offered to Ukraine since 2014. A total of EUR 2.8 billion was disbursed under these operations, including EUR 1.6 billion in 2014-2015 (under the so-called MFA I and II) and two tranches of EUR 600 million each in July 2015 and April 2017 (under MFA III). A third and final tranche of EUR 600 million under MFA III, subject to the implementation of 21 policy measures jointly agreed with the Ukrainian authorities, was not disbursed. Although Ukraine had fulfilled a large number of policy commitments attached to this instalment, four measures, including two related to the fight against corruption, had not been implemented by the time the availability period of the assistance expired in January 2018. Under these circumstances, the Commission was not in a position to disburse the last instalment under MFA III, which was officially cancelled on 18 January 2018.

The objective of the proposed MFA is to help Ukraine cover part of its additional external financing needs in 2018-2019, reducing the economy’s short-term balance-of-payment and fiscal vulnerabilities. In addition, the EU assistance would provide incentives to step up Ukraine's reform efforts by agreeing with the Ukrainian authorities a Memorandum of Understanding setting out an appropriate package of measures supporting economic adjustment and structural and anti-corruption reforms. Three other of the six Eastern Partnership countries - Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine -already benefit from MFA programmes, in addition to four other non-EaP countries.

In light of the incomplete implementation by Ukraine of the policy programme linked to MFA III it is appropriate to include specific conditions for each of the two tranches of this assistance. In particular those conditions must also include the measures that were not implemented under the previous programme in the following way:

•  On the verification of asset declarations of public officials, the Commission must insist on the establishment of an effective verification system, including through automatic verification software with direct and automatic access to state databases and registers. In the Memorandum to be agreed with Ukraine under the proposed new MFA operation, the Commission should therefore require the aforementioned automated verification system to be in place and operating, with a significant number of declarations verified through the automated system, giving priority to high-level officials, at the time of disbursement of the second tranche of the MFA IV programme.

•  On the verification of data to be provided by companies on their beneficial owners and the enforcement of companies’ reporting obligation, including in the EU, expert exchanges between Ukraine and the EU should be organized with a view to establishing the necessary steps for Ukraine to implement a verification mechanism. On this basis, the Memorandum should specify tangible benchmarks for a verification mechanism as a condition under the MFA IV programme.

•  The wood export ban, which is not compatible with refraining from trade-restricting measures, remains in place, and a law repealing it is yet to be considered by the responsible parliamentary committee in Ukraine. The Commission should engage with the Ukrainian authorities with a view to finding a solution to this irritant through the use of dedicated trade instruments, especially the bilateral dispute settlement mechanism.

Conditionality attached to the MFA provides useful leverage to stimulate reforms, notably those related to democracy and the rule of law. Amongst these reforms, the Ukrainian government is currently attempting to pass additional constitutional reforms. The government has committed to further amending the constitution in line with the Venice Commission recommendations yet Commission and EEAS monitoring, also as part of this assistance, would be appropriate.

As the effective fight against corruption is key to the reform process, the need for further efforts of Ukraine in this context must be emphasized. The EU’s concerns related to the obligation for civic activists to submit e-declarations need also to be responded to, as well as judicial sector reform at all levels. It is important that conditions as specified in the previous and current MFAs are fulfilled by the Ukrainian government before further financial assistance is disbursed.

Consequently, in line with the agreement between the Foreign Affairs and International Trade committees on their close cooperation during this procedure and following the recent experience of the joint statement by the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission, annexed to the 4 July 2017 decision providing macro-financial assistance to the Republic of Moldova, the Foreign Affairs Committee proposes to:

1.  Reaffirm the pre-condition for granting macro-financial assistance related to democracy, the rule of law, human rights and in particular fight against corruption as this is of major importance to the Foreign Affairs committee;

2.  Ensure that the Commission and the EEAS monitor the fulfilment of this pre-condition throughout the lifecycle of the MFA, so that no disbursement is made before objectives are reached,

3.  Nevertheless limit the number of amendments to two, on a recital and an article of the decision in order to ensure a rapid agreement between the European Parliament and Council.

AMENDMENTS

The Committee on Foreign Affairs calls on the Committee on International Trade, as the committee responsible, to take into account the following amendments:

Amendment    1

Proposal for a decision

Recital 11

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(11)  Given that a residual external financing gap remains in Ukraine’s balance of payments over and above the resources provided by the IMF and other multilateral institutions, the Union macro-financial assistance to be provided to Ukraine is, under the current exceptional circumstances, considered to be an appropriate response to Ukraine’s request for support to its economic stabilisation, in conjunction with the IMF programme. The Union’s macro-financial assistance would support the economic stabilisation and the structural reform agenda of Ukraine, supplementing resources made available under the IMF’s financial arrangement.

(11)  Given that a residual external financing gap remains in Ukraine’s balance of payments over and above the resources provided by the IMF and other multilateral institutions, the Union macro-financial assistance to be provided to Ukraine is, under the current exceptional circumstances, considered to be an appropriate response to Ukraine’s request for support to its economic stabilisation, in conjunction with the IMF programme. The Union's macro-financial assistance would support the economic stabilisation and a socially responsible structural reform agenda of Ukraine, supplementing resources made available under the IMF's financial arrangement.

Amendment    2

Proposal for a decision

Recital 17

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(17)  A pre-condition for granting the Union’s macro-financial assistance should be that Ukraine respects effective democratic mechanisms – including a multi-party parliamentary system – and the rule of law, and guarantees respect for human rights. In addition, the specific objectives of the Union’s macro-financial assistance should strengthen the efficiency, transparency and accountability of the public finance management systems in Ukraine and should promote structural reforms aimed at supporting sustainable and inclusive growth, employment creation and fiscal consolidation. Both the fulfilment of the preconditions and the achievement of those objectives should be regularly monitored by the Commission and the European External Action Service.

(17)  A pre-condition for granting the Union’s macro-financial assistance (MFA) should be that Ukraine fulfils the conditions attached to past and forthcoming MFA programmes, notably those related to the fight against corruption, and respects effective democratic mechanisms, including a multi-party parliamentary system and the rule of law, which should be supported by an independent judiciary capable of effectively fighting corruption, and guarantees respect for human rights. Those conditions should be agreed with Ukraine in a detailed Memorandum of Understanding. In addition, the specific objectives of the Union’s macro-financial assistance should strengthen the efficiency, transparency and accountability of the public finance management systems in Ukraine, and promote structural reforms aimed at supporting sustainable and inclusive growth, employment creation and fiscal consolidation. Both the fulfilment of the preconditions and the achievement of those objectives should be regularly monitored by the Commission and the European External Action Service throughout the life-cycle of the MFA. The disbursement of the first instalment of financial support should be made available only after the outstanding policy measures which were attached to the final instalment of the previous MFA programme have been fully implemented. The Commission should provide a public assessment of the fulfilment of that precondition, including a clear indication of the benchmarks used in its assessment.

Amendment    3

Proposal for a decision

Recital 23

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(23)  The Union's macro-financial assistance should be subject to economic policy conditions, to be laid down in a Memorandum of Understanding. In order to ensure uniform conditions of implementation and for reasons of efficiency, the Commission should be empowered to negotiate such conditions with the Ukrainian authorities under the supervision of the committee of representatives of the Member States in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011. Under that Regulation, the advisory procedure should, as a general rule, apply in all cases other than as provided for in that Regulation. Considering the potentially important impact of assistance of more than EUR 90 million, it is appropriate that the examination procedure be used for operations above that threshold. Considering the amount of the Union's macrofinancial assistance to Ukraine, the examination procedure should apply to the adoption of the Memorandum of Understanding, and to any reduction, suspension or cancellation of the assistance,

(23)  The Union's MFA should be subject to conditions to be laid down in a Memorandum of Understanding, which should also include appropriate measurement criteria. Those conditions should not jeopardise the country's socio-economic stability and should be linked to the fight against poverty and job creation in a measurable way. In order to ensure uniform conditions of implementation and for reasons of efficiency, the Commission should be empowered to negotiate such conditions with the Ukrainian authorities after consulting with the relevant Ukrainian stakeholders and social partners and under the supervision of the committee of representatives of the Member States in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 182/2011. Under that Regulation, the advisory procedure should, as a general rule, apply in all cases other than as provided for in that Regulation. Considering the potentially important impact of assistance of more than EUR 90 million, it is appropriate that the examination procedure be used for operations above that threshold. Considering the amount of the Union's MFA to Ukraine, the examination procedure should apply to the adoption of the Memorandum of Understanding, and to any reduction, suspension or cancellation of the assistance,
