Implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme (A8-0059/2018 - Daciana Octavia Sârbu) BG

17-04-2018

Подкрепих доклада относно прилагането на Седмата програма за действие за околната среда (ПДОС). Докладът предоставя оценка на изпълнението на Седмата ПДОС до момента, както и на извършените действия в политиката за опазване на околната среда и в областта на климата. ПДОС определя препоръки и насоки относно прилагането на задължителните цели в областта на околната среда, които трябва да бъдат постигнати до 2020 г. от ЕС и държавите членки.
Смятам, че стриктното прилагане на действащото законодателство и приоритетното насочване на програмата към основните проблеми, касаещи опазването на околната среда и здравето на хората, ще спомогне за изпълнението на заложените цели. Подкрепям и нуждата от засилено сътрудничество с държавите членки и координиране на съществуващите политически инструменти на ЕС, които могат да ги подпомогнат.

Europass: framework for skills and qualifications (A8-0244/2017 - Thomas Mann, Svetoslav Hristov Malinov) BG

15-03-2018

Изцяло одобрявам и подкрепям портфолиото от документи „Европас“, защото то е един от многобройните инструменти и механизми, въведени на нивото на Съюза с цел подобряване на прозрачността и разбирането на уменията и квалификациите. Подобни документи улесняват както търсещите работа и работниците, така и техните работодатели.
Освен познатите форми на учене, платформата признава значението на опита, уменията и постиженията, които често имат съществена роля върху формирането на професионални и лични компетентности у човека. Докладът залага на това, че рамката „Европас“ следва да претърпи развитие, за да може в нея да се описват различни видове обучение и умения, и по-специално уменията, придобити чрез неформално и самостоятелно учене.

EU-New Zealand agreement on cooperation and mutual administrative assistance in customs matters (A8-0029/2018 - Daniel Caspary) BG

13-03-2018

Подкрепих препоръката относно сключването на Споразумението между Европейския съюз и Нова Зеландия за сътрудничество и административна взаимопомощ в митническата област. Споразумението представлява нова крачка към задълбочаване на преговорите за споразумение за свободна търговия между ЕС и Нова Зеландия, като ще гарантира правилното прилагане, предотвратяване, разследване в борбата с нарушенията на митническото законодателство.
Смятам, че създаването на правно основание за рамка на сътрудничество, с която да се гарантира сигурността на веригата за доставки, ще улесни и засили обмена на законната търговия, като същевременно ще улесни и засили сътрудничеството и административната взаимопомощ по митнически въпроси с Нова Зеландия.
