Explanations of vote

Text tabled : B7-0128/2011

  Maria do Céu Patrão Neves (PPE), in writing. (PT) I share the concerns and agree with the suggestions set out by the European Parliament in this motion for a resolution on the World Bank’s energy strategy, for which I voted. Given that access to modern energy services is a prerequisite for poverty eradication and economic development, and that the right to energy implies that energy services will be reliable, affordable and evenly distributed, so as to bridge the gap between urban and rural areas, it seems crucial to me to promote an investment policy based on the sustainable use of natural resources. I therefore agree with the European Parliament’s recommendations to the World Bank in this area.
