Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A7-0052/2010

  Maria do Céu Patrão Neves (PPE), in writing.(PT) I voted in favour of the European Parliament resolution as I believe that it is in the interests of the Union to further deepen its relations with developing countries, in particular in areas such as economic, commercial, academic, business and scientific exchanges. The Union therefore needs a financial instrument that allows for the financing of such measures. On the other hand, extending the geographical scope of Regulation (EC) No 1934/2006 brings the developing countries concerned within the scope of two different external action financial instruments. Care should be taken to ensure that these two financial instruments are kept strictly separate from one other.
