Prioritățile UE pentru cea de a 64-a sesiune a Comisiei ONU pentru statutul femeii (B9-0093/2020, B9-0095/2020) EN

13-02-2020

. ‒ 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.

Încheierea Acordului de liber schimb UE-Vietnam (A9-0003/2020 - Geert Bourgeois) EN

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.

Obiecție în temeiul articolului 111 din Regulamentul de procedură: lista proiectelor de interes comun a Uniunii (B9-0091/2020) EN

12-02-2020

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.

Obiecție în temeiul articolului 112 din Regulamentul de procedură: Plumbul și compușii acestuia (B9-0089/2020) EN

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.

O strategie UE pentru a eradica mutilarea genitală a femeilor în întreaga lume (B9-0090/2020, B9-0092/2020) EN

12-02-2020

I fully support this resolution. FGM is one of the most widespread and systematic violations of the human rights of women and girls. International law recognises FGM as a violation of human rights. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Convention on the Rights of the Child calls on states to eliminate harmful traditional practices, and the African Union Protocol to the Charter on Human and People’s Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa explicitly calls on states to prohibit and condemn FGM through the enactment of laws that aim at its elimination.
Each year, almost 3 million girls risk undergoing FGM and between 100 and 150 million women have already been subjected to FGM. With varying prevalence, FGM is practised in 28 African countries, in the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East, and South and Southeast Asia. Historically it has been committed in Europe and North America, and immigration has reintroduced it in these countries, as well as in Australia, New Zealand and areas of Africa where it was not previously established.
FGM is harmful and traumatic both physically and psychologically. Europe must do its outmost to stop this practice.

Procesele decizionale automatizate: asigurarea protecției consumatorilor și libera circulație a bunurilor și a serviciilor (B9-0094/2020) EN

12-02-2020

I welcome this resolution, in particular I want to recall that automated decision-making systems rely on gathering large amounts of data. I believe that the regulation on the free flow of non-personal data will help to make more data available across the EU, thereby enabling innovative data-driven services to be created.
The resolution notes the potential of data sharing not only from public but also private sources in this regard, while emphasising the imperative of protecting personal data under the GDPR. It stresses the importance of using only high-quality and unbiased data sets in order to improve the output of algorithmic systems and boost consumer trust and acceptance.

Mandat propus de negociere pentru negocierile în vederea unui nou parteneriat cu Regatul Unit al Marii Britanii și Irlandei de Nord (B9-0098/2020) EN

12-02-2020

I supported this resolution and hope we can have a ambitious free and fair trade deal with the UK. The future association and trade agreement is and should be mutual beneficial for both parties. The level playing field and social and environmental high standards should be maintained and guaranteed. The rights of all citizens both living in Europe and the ones remaining in the UK should be safeguarded. In particular I think of the Romanian residents in the UK, who are citizens working and contributing to the UK economy. I call on the British authorities to safeguard their rights.

Banca Centrală Europeană – raport anual 2018 (A9-0016/2020 - Costas Mavrides) EN

12-02-2020

I of course defend the independence of the ECB and its primary objective of maintaining price stability. I welcome the ECB’s future contribution against climate change. The resolution recalls that, as an EU institution, the ECB is bound by the Paris Agreement on climate change and that this should be reflected in its policies, while fully respecting its mandate and its independence.
I also take note of ECB President Christine Lagarde’s declaration of 4 September 2019, in which she endorsed ‘a gradual transition to eliminate carbon assets’ from the ECB’s portfolio and welcomed the ECB’s participation in the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) and commitment to help identify and measure the financial system’s exposure to climate‑related risks and foster a greener financial system acting in full respect for the ECB’s price stability mandate and other objectives.
Moreover, the resolution underlines the importance of developing truly European payment systems that are immune from external disruptions (including political ones) and calls on the ECB to continue its work on the Pan-European Payment System Initiative (PEPSI) project with the aim of preserving the EU’s sovereignty and economic efficiency for all users and providers, as well as ensuring fair competition.

Comerțul ilegal cu animale de companie în UE (B9-0088/2020) EN

12-02-2020

I support this resolution. It calls on the Commission to draw up a cross-sectoral EU action plan to address the illegal trade in companion animals in the EU. I call for a study of the specificities of each Member States as they are not all at the same level or have the same situation.
The resolution aims at a harmonised, EU-wide system of mandatory identification and registration of cats and dogs as a crucial and necessary first step in the fight against illegal trade in companion animals and notes that registration and identification are key conditions for control, enforcement and traceability. It considers it essential for companion animals to be microchipped by a veterinarian and recorded in a national animal identification and registration file to ensure their effective traceability.
