Antidumping measures

The international trade committee will have a vote on protective measures against dumped and subsidised imports from countries not members of the EU. ECR MEP Sander Loones is shadow-rapporteur and believes that without strong anti-dumping measures our EU industry would be put at serious risk. “We need to ensure that our businesses are not subject to unfair practices and market distortions in third countries, while at the same time ensuring that it is non-discriminatory and WTO compatible.”

Committee vote: Tuesday @ 09.00-12.30

Towards a pan-European covered bonds framework

On Tuesday, MEPs in the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee will vote on Bernd Lucke’s INI Report on a pan-European covered bonds framework.

covered bonds are instruments with a long-established track record of low default rates and reliable payments. Currently the EU law lacks a precise definition of covered bonds while granting them preferential treatment. This is where the Commission has stepped in to assess whether a common European framework for covered bonds needs to be installed.

The report calls for any possible European legislation to be limited to a principles-based approach which establishes objectives but leaves the ways and means to be specified in national law. Domestic and cross-border investments in covered bonds work well in EU markets under the current legislative framework and the diversity of current products should be maintained.

Vote: Tuesday @ 17.00
