Week Ahead - 25 - 29 October 2021

Legal migration policy and law; EU Forest Strategy; Cooperation on fight against organised crime in the Western Balkans

Legal migration policy and law

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs will vote on a report that proposes to increase labour migration into the EU from third countries. The Text proposes new measures to attract medium and low-skilled workers. The ECR Group disagrees with attempts to Europeanize labour market policies. National labour markets across the EU are so diverse that any measures in this area are best left to the Member States. ECR Shadow Rapporteur Charlie Weimers also opposes the idea that importing low wage labour helps increase productivity and wages for European workers.

Votes: Tuesday @ 16:45 & Wednesday @ 10:00

EU Forest Strategy

On Wednesday, the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Strategy will hold an exchange of views with Commissioner Sinkevičius and Commissioner Wojciechowski on the EU Forest Strategy – a flagship initiative of the European Green Deal. The ECR Group is of the opinion that forests can contribute to offsetting carbon emissions. It is therefore important to preserve, improve and increase forested areas if the EU is to reach climate neutrality. Moreover, forests deliver clean water and clean air, they prevent soil erosion, and can play a major role in the circular bio-economy. At the same time, the ECR Group stresses the fact that forest management is a competency of Member States.

Debate: Wednesday @ 17:15

Cooperation on fight against organised crime in the Western Balkans

On Tuesday, Members of the Foreign Affairs Committee will vote on an own Initiative report on cooperation in the fight against organised crime in the Western Balkans. The text highlights the need for strengthening efforts when it comes to tackling organised crime, specifically in Serbia, North Macedonia and Albania. The ECR Group believes it is a crucial moment for increased efforts in the region in order to close gaps in existing regulatory and administrative infrastructures that can be exploited by non-state actors. In particular, areas such as targeted training programmes, legislative reviews and the exchange of best practices will be addressed.

Vote: Tuesday @ 9:00 & @ 13:45
