New anti-dumping rules to provide clarity to businesses

On Wednesday MEPs will vote to update the EU’s system of anti-dumping duties which will provide further clarity and protection to businesses. The proposal was triggered after China challenged the EU over its trade defence instruments at the WTO, claiming they had reached Market Economy Status in December 2016. ECR Flemish MEP Sander Loones has welcomed the proposals and reminded that trade means more jobs and greater prosperity, but for free trade to work it must be based on clear rules.

When: Debate, Tuesday @ 15:00, vote, Wednesday @ 12:30

Improved relations with New Zealand
Parliament will vote on ECR MEP Charles Tannock’s report that concludes the EU-New Zealand Partnership Agreement that will pave the way for closer ties between the two parties. The Partnership Agreement aims to improve cooperation on trade and security matters and builds on our already close relationship.

When: Debate, Thursday from 9:00, vote @ 12:00

Parliament should not glorify communist atrocities
ECR MEPS, many of whom were political dissidents during the oppression by the Soviet regime, will speak next week during the controversial debate marking the 100 year anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution. ECR MEP Anna Fotyga, chair of the parliament’s security and defence sub-committee, has condemned those attempting to glorify the murderous and totalitarian regime that led to over 100million deaths in Europe.

When: Debate, Wednesday @ 15:00
