Harnessing talent in Europe’s regions (A9-0325/2023 - Cristina Maestre Martín De Almagro)

Written explanations of vote

. – On January, this year, the Commission has launched the Communication on Harnessing Talents in the EU regions, presenting during this event the “Talent buster mechanism”. The goal of this Mechanism is to support EU regions affected by the accelerated decline of their working age population.
I voted this report because it comes as an answer to the EC’s proposal, providing further analysis of the demographic and skills situation in the EU, as well as putting forward proposals that aim at finding advanced solutions. The European Parliament is of the belief that Cohesion Policy has an important role to play when talking about addressing the challenges of the labour market, in the future.
Among many excellent suggestions the report proposes, it also highlights the need to ensure a gender convergence in the labour market and emphasises the importance of attracting female talent, especially in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), by creating opportunities for girls and women, to follow an education and build careers in these areas.

Revised pollinators initiative - a new deal for pollinators (B9-0463/2023)

Written explanations of vote

Actions to mitigate pollinator decline are underpinned by the recognition that in addition to their intrinsic value, pollinators are important contributors to human wellbeing. They also play a central role in the maintenance of ecosystem functioning. Without pollinators, animal-pollinated plants would decline and eventually disappear and with it all organisms directly or indirectly depending on them. This would inevitably lead to the collapse of terrestrial ecosystems in the long term. The value of the direct contribution of insect pollinators to EU agricultural output has been estimated at around EUR 15 billion per year, so we can contribute to the wellbeing of our citizens.
There are some reasons for my vote in favor of this resolution.
