Turism ja transport 2020. aastal ja pärast seda (RC-B9-0166/2020, B9-0166/2020, B9-0175/2020, B9-0177/2020, B9-0178/2020, B9-0180/2020, B9-0182/2020, B9-0184/2020) EN

Tourism industry employs, directly and indirectly, 27 million people, contributing by more than 10% to the European GDP, as the third economic sector of the EU. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sector has been severely impacted and the EU, the main touristic destination in the world, has suffered tremendous losses.
I welcomed this resolution as it calls for the protection of workers in the tourism, travel and interlinked sectors as well as financial support for businesses in this industry, especially small and micro ones and ones in especially affected regions and reiterates the need for an ambitious strategy in order to strengthen the sector and make it more resilient in the future.

Määruse (EL) nr 1305/2013 muutmine seoses erimeetmetega erakorralise ajutise toetuse andmiseks EAFRD raames COVID-19 puhangule reageerimiseks (C9-0128/2020 - Norbert Lins) EN

European agriculture has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with all the producers affected by the close of the HORECA sector and the border restrictions, yet it has successfully provided without interruption fresh, healthy and nutritious food for half of billion of European citizens.
However, on the long term, European producers will be deeply impacted by the unfortunate coincidence of factors, such as the health crisis, the severe draught and the economic turbulence the EU will pass through.
Therefore, this exceptional temporary support is of the utmost importance for the European farmer, as it provides cash liquidity. EU countries can offer support of up to €5,000 per farmer and €50,000 per small and medium enterprise (SME). The AGRI Committee unanimously, due to the exceptional situation and the urgency to support the agricultural sector, decided to treat this file under urgent Procedure.
Thus, I firmly support this exceptional temporary measure.

COVID-19 puhangu järgne olukord Schengeni alal (B9-0165/2020) EN

19-06-2020

I support this resolution that recalls that the Schengen area is a tangible and cherished achievement at the very heart of the EU project, allowing unrestricted travel for more than 400 million people and having priceless value for citizens and businesses alike, and unique across history and the world.
The great benefits of the free movement of people and goods should be underlined and the EU should continue to its outmost to keep lorries, logistics and transport flowing as freely as possible between our EU member sates.

Piiriüleste ja hooajatöötajate kaitse Euroopas seoses COVID-19 kriisiga (B9-0172/2020) EN

Evidence shows that numerous companies have not implemented precautionary
protocols, in direct defiance of measures adopted by national authorities. Measures taken to
protect their health are often weak, absent or outright disregarded. In certain regions,
thousands of seasonal workers live segregated in deplorable housing conditions, in
rudimentary shelters, often without electricity, running water or sanitary facilities. These are
unacceptable circumstances, by any modern standard. Many of these seasonal workers have
little choice, their economic outlook is limited. But taking advantage of economically
vulnerable citizens is not indicative of a healthy checks-and-balances system. Therefore, I welcomed this resolution and I contributed through several amendments to its general aim of stopping these abuses.

Määruste (EL) nr 575/2013 ja (EL) 2019/876 muutmine seoses kohandustega COVID-19 pandeemiale reageerimiseks (A9-0113/2020 - Jonás Fernández) EN

I support and welcome this CRR quick fix proposal.
I believe its a good compromise to help banks finance the real economy in this time of Covid crisis. Moreover this deal also helps the non-euro areas countries.
I want to highlight that Romania and our Romanian Delegation contributed and participated actively to reach this positive result.
The agreement on the table is a good compromise; it also includes a preferential treatment for euro-denominated debt issued by non-euro countries, to help them in the current turbulence.
I welcome the fact that the deal includes resetting the transitional periods that originally were granted for exposures to central governments and central banks denominated in the currency of another Member State both with respect to the risk weights assigned to these exposures and the application of the large exposure rules.
These measures allows non-euro Member States to issue bonds in under more favourable conditions and therefore enable better access to funding to non-euro area governments.
This is a sign of solidarity and encouragement to all those countries that one day would like to join the Eurozone.

Konkurentsipoliitika – 2019. aasta aruanne (A9-0022/2020 - Stéphanie Yon-Courtin) EN

18-06-2020

Among the positive achievements for the S&D Group and for our citizens I would like to highlight the following points that our Group pushed to include: a ban on companies registered in tax havens from accessing state aid or financial support packages if they do not commit to change their behaviour.
Moreover we added the ban on dividend payments, share buybacks and distributions of bonuses for companies receiving state aid. We also highlighted in this report the risk of market distortions and unlevel playing field due to divergences between the levels of State Aid support granted by Member States.
I also want to highlight the digital part of the report where we are aware that the big digital platforms are the one that didn't suffer from this Covid 19 crisis. We call the Commission to make a study on platforms with significant network effects that act as gatekeepers, to be carried out as part of the upcoming ex ante regulation framework proposal. Our Group managed to include a call for the Commission to ban platforms from displaying micro-targeted advertisements and to increase transparency for users.

Maksuküsimuste allkomisjoni moodustamine (B9-0187/2020) EN

I welcome this committee on tax matters.
This will be a new platform for the Parliament to continue champion the questions related to tax justice, which will surely not disappear in the future pandemic recovery phase.
Europe needs new fresh ressources and taxes are Indeed a new way to find additional revenues beside member states contributions to the budget. I think that pollution and sustainable taxes should also be accompanied by financial sector and digital companies taxes. Europe should be a leader on this as well.

I support this creation of a special committee on artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is the future and can bring a lot of positive aspects to our daily lives. It also poses legitimate concerns and questions with regards privacy, data collection and liability.
The special committee work will include the hearing of evidence of a confidential nature, testimonies involving personal data, or exchanges of views or hearings with authorities and bodies on confidential information, including scientific studies regarding artificial intelligence.
In order to create good legislation, the regulators need to be informed and collect as mush information as possible.

Euroopa Ühenduse ja Cabo Verde Vabariigi vahelise kalandussektori partnerluslepingu rakendamise protokolli (2019–2024) sõlmimine (A9-0024/2020 - Cláudia Monteiro de Aguiar) EN

17-06-2020

As any other Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement (SFPA), this SFPA with the Cape Verde is of the utmost importance for the external dimension of the Common Fishery Policy (CFP) and for both the EU and the third party.
First of all, the former Agreement with Cape Verde entered into force in 2007 and expired in 2018. Therefore, the implementation of a new one is technically viable. Second of al, this new Agreement aligns its principles and objectives with the CFP, as it is founded on a precautionary approach in regards with the fisheries mangement.
It also provides fishing opportunities for Union vessels in Cabo Verde waters, on the basis of the best available scientific advice and following the recommendations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), while enabling EU and Cape Verde work more closely on promoting sound exploitation of fisheries resources in Cape Verde waters and support efforts by Cape Verde to develop its blue economy, in the interests of both parties.
Therefore, I voted in favour.
