State of the Union (topical debate) (continuation of debate)

  Dacian Cioloş (Renew). – Mr President, President von der Leyen, today you undertook a lot of commitments, which is the right way to do things, but I think now the expectation of people is to start to deliver. After one year of mandate, after more than six months of this crisis, I think now, a lot of people are waiting for us to deliver results, to come with the legislative proposals.

First of all, in order to give credibility to all this project and to all this amount of money committed on behalf of Europeans, I think we have to insist on two main things, and you mentioned this in your intervention today. First of all, to clearly connect money with values, resources with values. This is an important pillar for a real European Union and second to reinforce new own resources. This is the only way to build a real European project.

We expect very clear results in this direction. I hope that the Commission will be on behalf of Parliament in order to fight for that. So if the first step in order to rebuild our European credibility was to come with a plan, with a vision, this is done, in my opinion. Now the second step is to start to deliver and to implement these results and we have to work together on it, because I heard here about people who don’t hear or don’t see really what’s happened. I think only those who don’t want to, didn’t perceive the fact that we have really made progress.
