Assegnazione di bande orarie negli aeroporti della Comunità: norme comuni EN

26-03-2020
Dichiarazioni di voto scritte

. – I voted to allow the temporary suspension of rules obliging airlines to use their slots at EU airports, reflecting falling demand in flights. We have voted for three measures, the start of the EU’s pandemic response.
But we must do more. Solidarity is essential. We need EU cooperation to maintain supply chains for medical equipment and food. Beyond this, we must examine whether the EU is equipped to address global crises. We heard terrible stories from colleagues from Italy and Spain, the European countries worst affected. We must stand with our partners – as Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said, for their interest but also our own.
Member States have introduced border restrictions to prevent the disease’s further spread. While no country has banned freight, supply chains have been severely impacted. Recent waiting times at some borders have been over 24 hours, even for medical supplies.
The Commission is working with Member States to maintain EU-wide supply chains, for example establishing ‘green lane’ border crossings for freight, with maximum 15-minute waits, so medical supplies and food shipments are not delayed.
Research is vital to emerge from the crisis – the EU will invest in vaccines and treatments.
This is not just a health crisis but also economic. The ECB’s announcement of a €750 billion stimulus is extremely welcome. The EU should issue ‘coronabonds’ – an extraordinary measure responding to an extraordinary crisis. Finally, we must consider if the EU is fully equipped to deal with global crises.
On animal health, the EU has stronger powers which means more effective EU action on disease outbreaks like African Swine Fever. This isn’t the case for human health. Our strength on animal disease was only developed after the BSE crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis we cannot afford to waste. We must acknowledge the need for more coordinated EU action on health - more Europe, not less.
The EU has been limited by eurosceptics who constrain EU areas for action. These people then criticise the EU for not intervening effectively in a crisis. We should all think again about what we want the EU to look like. For my part, I want a Europe that acts before a crisis hits, a Europe well-prepared to handle future shocks, a Europe that leads globally and helps locally. We can do it. Perhaps this shock to the system will make us act - better late than never.
