Medidas específicas para mitigar o impacto do surto de COVID-19 no setor da pesca e da aquicultura EN

17-04-2020

. – Following the public health emergency related to the coronavirus pandemic, both the European aquaculture and fishery sector have been severely impacted, and both the short and long term effects are expected to be devastating. Therefore, I welcome the final adoption of this legislative proposal which will provide much needed support to fishermen and aquaculture farmers.
On the one hand, the proposal allows aid for those fleets forced to stay in the port due to quarantine measures, operational problems or market disruptions. On the other, it compensate the financial losses for aquaculture farmers as a result of the abrupt loss of sales. Last but not least, it support to producer organisations and associations of producer organisations for the storage of fishery and aquaculture products, in accordance with the Common Market Organisation.

Ação coordenada da UE para combater a pandemia de COVID-19 e as suas consequências EN

. – I firmly support this resolution. This exceptional crisis calls for exceptional financial means. It also calls for new innovative instruments.
The new revised Multiannual Financial Framework has to be extraordinary and double the amounts originally planned. The financial package of the Eurogroup on the table is a first positive step, but now we need facts and means. I hope the EU leaders will deliver concrete numbers in particular for the recovery fund next week.
I support the recovery bonds, guaranteed by the EU budget and the idea of real European solidarity which is a mutualisation of part of new debt created by extraordinary costs of this crisis in months to come.
I also support the call for a better coordination and information sharing between Member States regarding border closures and restrictions, including green lanes to protect supply chains, and the agricultural and fisheries references of the resolution, which I consider must be emphasized more in future resolutions.
Also, I believe EU-wide stockpiling of essential medical equipment, material and supplies, provision of test kits for regions which are highly affected, efficient and flexible joint procurement for medical supplies, strengthened public health agencies (ECDC, EMA) through the mobilisation of all public health tools available at European level are of the utmost importance in these times.

Atribuição de faixas horárias nos aeroportos da Comunidade: normas comuns EN

. – Following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, a new worrying phenomenon emerged: ‘ghost flights’. Despite a significant decline in passenger demand, who followed the instructions to cancel their trips, empty planes started flying our skies. Even though this would not make any economic sense, companies kept flying their planes only to secure their slots for next year. This is of great concern, as it not only causes needless carbon emissions, but it also deepens the economic crisis the aviation industry is going through right now. In this sense, while air carriers are experiencing a 40-60% year-on-year drop in forward bookings for the period March-June 2020 for non-Italian routes, bookings on Italian routes have dropped by over 50% in early March 2020 with load factors as low as 40%. Therefore, I voted in favour of the Commission proposal to temporarily alleviate airlines from their slot usage obligations under EU law without losing their rights. It is my firm belief this exceptional situation we have all been thrown in, could only be tackled by a firm, strong and urgent set of exceptional rules. If we are to defend our companies, our industries and our citizens, we have to act accordingly. The European Union should send a clear-cut message that under these unforeseen circumstances, no one, either citizens or company, is left behind.

Medidas específicas para mobilizar investimentos nos sistemas de saúde dos Estados-Membros e em outros setores das suas economias em resposta ao surto de COVID-19 [Iniciativa de Investimento Resposta ao Coronavírus] EN

. – ‘The coronavirus pandemic is a human tragedy of potentially biblical proportions’, a former ECB chief has said and this is just one way to describe the unprecedented situation the EU is going through right now.
Over the night, the Coronavirus pandemic has changed everything we knew before: the economic activity has been sharply reduced, businesses have started to struggle, and the citizens have been advised to stay at home in order to prevent the spread of the new virus. Actually, the EU is at war and we all must fight this war accordingly.
In order to do so, interventions are needed in the health care systems, for small and medium enterprises, for the labour markets and for every vulnerable industry. This is why I welcomed the Commission’s proposal for a ‘Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative’, and I voted in favour of releasing liquidities of more than EUR 37 billion into the market to fight the crisis immediately.
However, I believe this money would not be of much help, if we are not simultaneously going to change the paradigm and reprioritise our policies, values and strategies on the long term. The world has changed, and so the EU has to adapt to the new economic realities.

Assistência financeira aos Estados-Membros e aos países candidatos à adesão à União muito afetados por uma forte emergência de saúde pública EN

. – In order to fight the COVID-19 crisis, the EU Solidarity Fund (EUSF) plays an important role in manifesting EU’s solidarity towards Member States and help them successfully tackle the emergency situation.
However, given the fact that the EUSF has been initially designed to cope with major natural disasters, it has been observed it cannot be used for the COVID-19 pandemic. This is why, the European Commission’s proposal to adapt its scope and to include major public health emergencies like the one we are all facing, has been the right solution in order to enable financial assistance for all Member States under this fund. This will include assistance to the population in case of health emergency crisis, including medical, and any other necessary measures to contain the further spreading of an infectious disease.
Apart from enlarging its scope, I also welcome the proposals to increase both the advance payments of the expected EUSF contribution and the total level of appropriations for EUSF contribution in the annual budget. I firmly believe these are most needed kind of measures in such critical times and for all the above-mentioned reasons I voted in favour.

Prioridades da UE para a 64ª sessão da Comissão das Nações Unidas sobre a Condição da Mulher (B9-0093/2020, B9-0095/2020) EN

. ‒ I supported this resolution as it calls for: stepping up efforts for greater inclusion of women in the labour market and improved support for female entrepreneurship, given that they are key factors behind achieving long-term inclusive economic growth, combating inequalities and encouraging women’s financial independence; and for measures to be taken to address women’s unemployment, particularly their long-term unemployment
It also condemns all forms of gender-based violence and the fact that women and girls continue to be exposed to psychological, physical, sexual and economic violence, including domestic violence, sexual harassment, cyber—violence, stalking, rape, early and forced marriage, female genital mutilation (FGM), crimes committed in the name of so-called ‘honour’, forced abortion, forced sterilisation, sexual exploitation and human trafficking, and other forms of violence that constitute a serious violation of their human rights and dignity.

Celebração do Acordo de Comércio Livre UE-Vietname (A9-0003/2020 - Geert Bourgeois) EN

12-02-2020

I supported this FTA because I think its the best way forward to monitor and make sure Vietnam will improve its social and human rights record. With this tool the EU will be able to monitor and steer Vietnam towards improving its democratic and environmental standards. The alternative would have been to let Vietnam sign a deal with China, for example, that has maybe less concerns as regards human and religious rights respect, for example.
I want to recall that the European Parliament passed two urgent resolutions calling on the Vietnamese Government to improve its human rights record. With this FTA the EU will be able to monitor and have a close look at how the Vietnamese Government will deal with human rights defenders, members of civil society, religious groups, and individuals who express opinions it deemed unfavourable or critical of the state. The rights to free expression, opinion, association, and assembly must prevail and be guaranteed.

Objeção nos termos do artigo 111.º do Regimento: lista da União de projetos de interesse comum (B9-0091/2020) EN

Parliament recognises the efforts made by the Commission to keep on the Union list of Projects of Common Interest a stable number of electricity projects, which are necessary to effectively pave the way for the European energy transition in line with the climate change objectives.
I want to recall that not all Member States have the same history and are at the same level of development. Each has its own specificities that should be fully taken into account.

Objeção nos termos do artigo 112.º do Regimento: Chumbo e seus compostos (B9-0089/2020) EN

12-02-2020

The aim of this draft Commission regulation is to seek to limit the level of lead where used as a stabiliser in polymers or copolymers of vinyl chloride (PVC).
It is important to remind that lead is a toxic substance that can cause serious health effects, including irreversible neurological damage, even at low doses. There is no safe level for lead, lead is also harmful to the environment: it is very toxic to aquatic life and persists in the environment for long periods.
