Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A7-0084/2012

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing. (ET) The European Union’s outermost regions are a body of regions that possess a special status specified in the EU Treaties, which makes it possible to make exceptions in the provisions of the EU Treaties and adjust those provisions for the outermost regions due to the distinctive features and conditions of those regions. Since there are permanent restrictive and aggravated circumstances in these regions which mean they are recognised as being different from other European regions, EU legislation and programmes cannot be implemented uniformly over the entire territory of the EU; rather, their implementation must be based on a territorial approach. I support the rapporteur’s position that European policy measures should be adjusted when implemented in the outermost regions of the EU, because those regions will only be able to better achieve the objectives of economic, social and territorial cohesion through specially adapted EU policy measures, while they can contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy. It should certainly be noted that the special measures of the Programme of Options Specifically Relating to Remoteness and Insularity (POSEI) have been successful in agricultural and fisheries policy, making it possible to consider the possibility of launching other programmes of this type in other potential sectors such as energy and renewable energy sources, transport and information and communications technology. Unfortunately, I cannot agree with the rapporteur’s position that support for the outermost regions must be continued regardless of their level of development, which is generally expressed as GDP per resident. I believe that if a given region is doing well enough to manage on its own, it is no longer necessary to allocate as much EU support to that region. In conclusion, I supported the adoption of the report.
