Transitional provisions for support from the EAFRD and EAGF in the years 2021 and 2022 (A9-0101/2020 - Elsi Katainen)

Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of the report for transnational provisions for support from the EAFRD and EAGF. The document is a transnational regulation that will ensure certainty for farmers in the Union, specifically with regard to the CAP during the transition period between 2021-2022. It will give additional support during the transition and ensure certain measures for flexibility around the duration of multi-annual agri-environmental, animal welfare and organic commitments. I believe this report includes the necessary provision to ensure that the farmers in the Member States do not suffer during the transition period.

European Year of Rail (2021) (A9-0191/2020 - Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg)

Written explanations of vote

I support the initiative, because it will promote rail as sustainable, innovative, and a safe mode of transport. Latvia is a part of the Rail Baltica project that will stretch across various cities and terrains, reaching a number of cities and connecting its people with a fast and reliable travel service. With the effects of COVID-19, we much ensure that our transport systems do not suffer beyond repair. I think this agreement has a lot of positive aspects and will encourage public involvement and support for the rail industry in for the coming year. Also, it will promote safe and responsible travel and tourism in the Union Member States. Looking forward to 2021, this will alleviate the damage to the economy from the pandemic. Therefore, I voted in favour of this proposal.

The Baltic States reiterate that the priorities of all countries adopted at the European Council must be respected. Including #CEF. I emphasized it again today in the EP TRAN committee. 

Baltijas valstu vadītāji vēlreiz akcentē, ka visu valstu prioritātes, kas tika pieņemtas vasaras Eiropadomes sēdē, ir jārespektē. @RailBaltica finansēšanai ir jārod kompromiss starp Padomi un Parlamentu. Šo vēlreiz šodien akcentēju EP Transporta komitejā. 

.. Kas pārlieku taupīs šodien, riskē zaudēt savu tirgus daļu vai savu biznesu, kad ekonomika atkopsies. Bet neraugoties uz to, transporta un tūrisma jomās labākā izeja no krīzes ir plaša sabiedrības vakcinācija - mūsu konkurējošā priekšrocība.
