Skupna pravila dodeljevanja slotov na letališčih Skupnosti 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.

. – ‘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.

. – 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.

. ‒ 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.

Sklenitev Sporazuma o prosti trgovini med EU in Vietnamom (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.

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.

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.

Strategija EU za odpravo pohabljanja ženskih spolovil po svetu (B9-0090/2020, B9-0092/2020) EN

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.

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.
