Listing the third countries whose nationals must be in possession of visas when crossing the external borders and those whose nationals are exempt from that requirement (Kosovo) (A8-0261/2016 - Tanja Fajon)  
 

. – I voted in favour of the report because it is important to support Kosovo and its European perspective in particular when it comes to assisting the authorities of the country to fulfil the required benchmarks so that citizens of Kosovo are able to move for short stays of 90 days within any 180-day period and benefit from the visa—free regime.

Quality of water intended for human consumption (A8-0288/2018 - Michel Dantin)  
 

. – I voted in favour of the report because it is very important that the quality of water intended for human consumption is at its highest standards, in order to guarantee that human health is protected from any adverse effects of any contamination of water, which should be the same standards within the whole European Union.

Increasing the efficiency of restructuring, insolvency and discharge procedures (A8-0269/2018 - Angelika Niebler)  
 

. – I voted in favour of the report because the new rules for insolvency will encourage Member States to implement early restructuring procedures and allow entrepreneurs to rescue their companies at the EU level.
