Sluiting vrijhandelsovereenkomst EU - Vietnam (A9-0003/2020 - Geert Bourgeois) EN  
 

I voted in favour of this recommendation because it allows companies, especially small and medium size enterprises, to take full advantage of global value chains in the region and would promote economic growth. Also this agreement with Vietnam will serve as an example for the other deals the EU is negotiating in South-East Asia.

Bezwaar op grond van artikel 111 van het Reglement: Unielijst van projecten van gemeenschappelijk belang (B9-0091/2020) EN  
 

I voted in opposition to this resolution because, opposite to what the resolution proposes, I do not object to the Commission’s delegated regulation amending (EU) no 347/3013.

The report also reiterates that as an EU institution, the ECB is bound by the Paris Agreement on climate change. It also highlights the desire to continue to deepen the European Monetary Union.

De illegale handel in gezelschapsdieren in de EU (B9-0088/2020) EN
