Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (debate)

  Eduard Kukan (PPE). – Mr President, I want to thank the rapporteurs for their work on this file. When I saw the proposal from the Commission for the first time, I was quite sceptical. As the former rapporteur on the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) and European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD), I saw problems in combining both of our external instruments under one umbrella, especially in the case of the ENI. It will be crucial to keep the initial philosophy of this instrument as a policy—driven instrument for our neighbourhood partners.

I support continuation of the ‘more for more’ principle. We established this principle in order to reward and support reforms, efforts leading to the consolidation of democracy, rule of law and protection of human rights and support for economic governance reforms. At the same time, we should find the proper framework for discussing the performance and allocation for ‘more for more’. Also, the European Parliament should be more involved in the designing, programming and monitoring of the instrument.
