. – In accordance with Article 2(1) TFEU, the Union may empower Member States to act in areas where it has exclusive competence. Following the request made by Germany to be empowered to amend its bilateral road transport accord with Switzerland, of 1953, with a view to authorising cabotage operations during the provision of passenger transport services by coach and bus in the border regions between the two countries, an answer has been given by the European Commission, by making this proposal, which also gives a respond to Switzerland, both countries being interested in concluding the same agreement.
Cabotage operations within the Union by third country carriers, not holding a Community licence, affect the functioning of the internal market for coach and bus services. They also affect the Land Transport Agreement between the EU and Switzerland, under which cabotage operations are not authorised, excepting the case of pre-existing rights in bilateral agreements between Member States and Switzerland. Currently, only France has such an agreement with Switzerland authorising cabotage.
Taking into consideration that Germany’s request falls within the scope of the mentioned article and the fact that under the Commission’s proposal, the authorisation is not subject of discrimination between carriers established within the Union and that there is also a clearly limited geographical scope of the cabotage operations, I have voted this proposal, following the Rappoteur recommendations.

. – Proposed cabotage operations within the Union by third country carriers, not holding a Community licence, could affect the functioning of the internal market for coach and bus services as established through Regulation (EC) No 1073/2009.
In June 2018 within the meeting of the EU-Switzerland Inland Transport Committee, Switzerland has informed the Commission that it was interested in concluding a bilateral road transport agreement with Italy with a view to authorising cabotage operations during the provision of passenger transport services by coach and bus in the border regions between the two countries. This was an answer to Iltay´s demand concerning the same issue.
Commitments intended by Italy fall within the scope of the Union’s exclusive competence. In accordance with Article 2(1) TFEU, the Union may empower Member States to act in areas where it has exclusive competence.
The Commission proposal underlines that cabotage operations authorisation between Italy and Switzerland is not a subject of discrimination between carriers established within the Union and that it falls under the mentioned Article 2(1) TFEU. In addition, it has been stipulated that there is also a clearly limited geographical scope of the cabotage operations.
I have voted the Commission’s proposal because it will improve cross-border public transport links, will make travel by bus and coach more accessible and attractive and will provide more choice for the people living and working on both sides of the border.

Erimeetmed erandliku paindlikkuse lubamiseks Euroopa struktuuri- ja investeerimisfondide kasutamisel COVID-19 puhangu tõttu EN

. – The first package of measures of the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative has concentrated on the immediate mobilisation of Structural Funds, in order to allow a prompt response to the crisis.
The second package, Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative Plus (CRII+), complements the first one by introducing extraordinary flexibility to allow that all non-utilised support from the European Structural and Investment Funds can be mobilised to the fullest.
This flexibility is provided for through: transfer possibilities across the three cohesion policy funds involved in this process, the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund and the Cohesion Fund; transfers between the different categories of regions; and also through flexibility when it comes to thematic concentration. There will also be the possibility for a 100% EU co-financing rate for cohesion policy programmes for the accounting year 2020-2021, allowing Member States to benefit from full EU financing for crisis-related measures. The CRII+ package also simplifies procedural steps linked to the programme’s implementation, use of financial instruments and audit.
This is unprecedented and justified because of the extraordinary situation that the coronavirus outbreak has led to. It will be a temporary change of the Cohesion Policy´s rules.
The Commission proposal has been voted for by COREPER and of course by Parliament exactly as it has been proposed. I also voted for it, taking into consideration the huge and urgent necessity for these special measures to be put in place in order to help people.
