Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A7-0163/2011

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing.(ET) In today’s vote, I supported the regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a programme to support the further development of an integrated maritime policy. The integrated maritime policy emphasises an integrated approach to the management and administration of oceans, seas and coastal areas, and promotes the integration of all areas of EU policy connected with maritime affairs. This regulation elaborates upon the programme’s framework, use and grounds for funding. The following main topics are examined in said report: the more precise elaboration of programme objectives, a clear position concerning funding and the closer involvement of legislators in further decision making using delegated legislation and reporting. In addition, it was resolved that EUR 40 million would be allocated for the implementation of the programme in the years 2011-2013. The broader inclusion of legislators and different levels of government in the elaboration of maritime policy can be seen as one of the most significant amendments in this report. It is also specifically noted that cross-sectoral cooperation platforms and networks that include government institutions, regional and local bodies, branches of industry, research-oriented stakeholders, citizens, representatives of civil society organisations and social partners must be promoted.
