Macro-financial assistance to enlargement and neighbourhood partners in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis PT

Written explanations of vote

A actual situação de crise que se vive devido ao surto de COVID-19 tem tido um forte impacto na dimensão e na natureza das necessidades que requerem apoio orçamental urgente por parte da União Europeia.
A proposta da Comissão visa conceder assistência macrofinanceira (AMF) no montante total de 3 mil milhões de euros a 10 países do alargamento e da vizinhança que enfrentam uma crise da balança de pagamentos: Albânia, Bósnia e Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, República da Macedônia do Norte, Geórgia, Moldávia, Ucrânia, Jordânia e Tunísia.
Reconheço a importância de mostrar aos parceiros da região que a UE está disponível para os apoiar neste momento de crise sem precedentes.
É neste contexto que votei favoravelmente a proposta da Comissão relativa à assistência macrofinanceira aos países mencionados no contexto da crise desencadeada pela pandemia de COVID-19.

2018 discharge: Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (A9-0030/2020 - Joachim Stanisław Brudziński)

14-05-2020
Written explanations of vote

I supported the 2018 discharge as there were no specific objections on how the EU budget was used by the Joint Undertaking in question. Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier and the work performed by the JU is remarkable when it comes to bring new solutions into to the European market. Ensuring the discharge means continuing the activity and in the future we will have to enhance our commitment in this sector, seen also the plans for a new strategy dedicated to hydrogen that the Commission plans to adopt in the next months.

2018 discharge: Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking (A9-0032/2020 - Ryszard Antoni Legutko)

14-05-2020
Written explanations of vote

Clean Sky is dedicated to reduce the environmental impact of aeronautical technologies and to enhance the competitiveness of European aviation. It engages the best talents and resources in Europe and it utilises the key skills and knowledge of the leading European aeronautic research establishments and academic faculties. It brought major results in terms of increased efficiency of the aviation sector, playing an essential role in accelerating green technologies aiming at reducing CO2, gas emission and noise levels produced by aircrafts. In view of the climate neutrality objective, this undertaking will have an increasingly important part in the common efforts that must be done. The technological challenge is complicated, and I deemed important to ensure my support to its discharge as it has to coordinate the efforts for all Member States and the European industry.
