Mechanism to resolve legal and administrative obstacles in a cross-border context (A8-0414/2018 - Matthijs van Miltenburg)  
 

. ‒ I voted in favour of the mechanism to resolve legal and administrative obstacles in a cross-border context so that Member States can work on mechanisms to remove obstacles in the implementation of a joint project in cross-border regions on one of its borders with one or more neighbouring states.

Draft Agreement on Cooperation between Eurojust and Georgia (A8-0065/2019 - Sylvia-Yvone Kaufmann)  
 

I voted in favour of this draft agreement because it will allow Georgia and the European Union to foster cooperation as regards combating serious crimes, especially organised crime and terrorism.

Health technology assessment (A8-0289/2018 - Soledad Cabezón Ruiz)  
 

I voted in favour of the health technology assessment (HTA) because it’s an extremely helpful tool which can aid in decision-based healthcare. HTA weighs the value of new or existing health technologies compared with other health technologies. These can range from medicines and medical devices all the way to surgical procedures. The HTA will positively benefit healthcare throughout the EU.
