 FOR (+) Hemos votado a favor de este informe sobre la posición del Parlamento al respecto de un futuro acuerdo con los países y territorios de ultramar de la UE. Compartimos la opinión del informe sobre el hecho de que los habitantes de los países y territorios de ultramar son ciudadanos europeos y, por lo tanto, que es necesario crear un régimen unificado para todos dentro del presupuesto europeo. Además, respaldamos que la dimensión política de la asociación entre la UE y los países y territorios de ultramar debe fortalecerse con un mayor papel para los Parlamentos, y que la protección de la biodiversidad y la adaptación al cambio climático deben ser elementos esenciales.

ANDERSON
 FOR (+) . – There are currently 25 Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) associated with EU Member States, but not part of the customs union or internal market, meaning that EU legislation does not apply. The Overseas Association Decision (OAD) outlines the special relationship that most of these OCT’s have with the EU, including funding under the European Development Fund (EDF). Greenland currently has a separate arrangement – the Greenland Decision – funded from the EU budget.
After Brexit, the number of OCTs will drop to 13. The Commission has therefore proposed a new OAD as a unified framework for all OCTs, with a single financial instrument that is part of the upcoming European budget for 2021-2027. It would also merge with the Greenland Decision, creating a unified regime for all remaining OCTs.
This report improves on the Commission proposal by calling specifically for funding to go towards good governance, protecting biodiversity, combating climate change, gender balance and tackling youth unemployment, amongst other things.
I therefore voted in favour of the report.

 FOR (+) . – This report represents the Parliament’s position on the future framework on EU Overseas Countries and Territories. We share the report’s view on the fact that inhabitants of the OCTs are European citizens, and that there is therefore a need to create a unified regime for all OCTs with a financial instrument from the European budget. In addition, we believe that the political dimension of the association between the EU and the OCTs must be strengthened with an increased role for parliaments, and that biodiversity protection and climate change adaptation must be essential elements of the future framework. Because of these reasons, we have voted in favour.

 FOR (+) Η Έκθεση σχετικά με την πρόταση απόφασης του Συμβουλίου για τη σύνδεση των Υπερπόντιων Χωρών και Εδαφών με την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, συμπεριλαμβανομένων των σχέσεων μεταξύ της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης, αφενός, και της Γροιλανδίας και του Βασιλείου της Δανίας, αφετέρου αποτελεί ένα ακόμη βήμα καλύτερης και αποτελεσματικότερης συνεργασίας μεταξύ των κρατών. Γι’ αυτό και την υπερψήφισα.

 FOR (+) No quadro de associação atual, existem 25 países e territórios ultramarinos (PTU), ligados a quatro Estados-Membros: Dinamarca, França, Holanda e Reino Unido. Os PTU não fazem parte do território aduaneiro da UE, situando-se no exterior do mercado interno. Assim, a legislação da UE não lhes é aplicável.
A Decisão de Associação Ultramarina estabelece o quadro de parceria institucional com a UE e as possibilidades de financiamentos e apoios estruturais (através do FED) que deverão contribuir para o desenvolvimento social e económico dos PTU.
A saída do Reino Unido da UE vai significar a redução de 12 países desta associação, o que irá ter impactes na distribuição de fundos e na operacionalidade dos intercâmbios com os PTU.
Propõe-se a criação de um fundo associado ao orçamento da UE (2021-2027) que aumente as verbas a ser disponibilizadas a estes países e os espaços de diálogo, nomeadamente através de um maior envolvimento dos parlamentos, a par de uma intervenção mais efetiva na defesa da biodiversidade e na adaptação às alterações climáticas.
Mesmo considerando a natureza dos PTU e desta relação, lastro presente de tempo colonial, entende-se como fator que não deve ser rejeitado, pelo contrário, a disponibilização de fundos para o seu desenvolvimento social, económico e ambiental.

 FOR (+) I chose to vote in favour of this as it recognises that the 13 overseas countries and territories (OCTs) linked to Denmark, France and the Netherlands are a part of the European Union at a time when Brexit is happening, and they need assurances regarding their European citizenship. It will also give these OCTs EU funding to protect their biodiversity and to help them adapt to the effects of climate change.

 FOR (+) Esta proposta materializa a revisão da Decisão de Associação dos países e territórios ultramarinos (PTU) à UE, antecipando a saída do Reino Unido e o novo Quadro Plurianual de Financiamento 21-27.
No quadro de associação atual, existem 25 PTU, ligados a quatro Estados-Membros: Dinamarca, França, Holanda e Reino Unido. Os PTU dispõem de uma vasta autonomia, em matéria económica, de mercado de trabalho, saúde pública, assuntos internos e aduaneiros. A defesa e os negócios estrangeiros continuam, em geral, a ser da competência dos Estados Membros.
Os PTU não fazem parte do território aduaneiro da UE, situando-se no exterior do mercado interno. Assim, a legislação da UE não lhes é aplicável. A Decisão de Associação Ultramarina estabelece o quadro de parceria institucional com a UE e as possibilidades de financiamentos e apoios estruturais (através do FED) que deverão contribuir para o desenvolvimento social e económico dos PTU.
A saída do Reino Unido da UE vai significar a redução de 12 países desta associação, o que irá ter impactes na distribuição de fundos e na operacionalidade dos intercâmbios com os PTU.
