Amendment 183 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 6
(6) Past experiences have shown that investment is often drastically cut during crises. However, it is essential to support investment in this particular situation to speed up the recovery and strengthen long- term growth potential. Investing in green and digital technologies, higher-risk activities such as research and innovation, capacities and processes aimed at assisting clean energy transition, boosting energy efficiency in housing and other key sectors of the economic are important to achieve sustainable growth and help create jobs. It will also help make the Union more resilient and less dependent by diversifying key supply chains.

(10a) The Facility should not substitute recurring national spending and Member States should maintain at least the same level of its public investment compared to the average level of its public investment in the five previous years.

Amendment 378 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 18 a (new)
(18a) In preparing and implementing their Recovery and Resilience Plans and in proposing reforms and investments Member States should consider Article 107 TFEU and the State aid framework and its restrictions. The proper functioning of the internal market and its competition and State aid rules are to the benefit of European consumers and businesses and are necessary to avoid undue distortions of competition. The Commission should therefore continue to perform its role under the Treaties to ensure a level playing field in the internal market.

Amendment 412 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 21
(21) In order to ensure the national ownership and a focus on relevant reforms and investments, Member States wishing to receive support should submit to the Commission a recovery and resilience plan that is duly reasoned and substantiated, substantiated and takes into account regional and local preferences to make sure real needs on the ground are met . The recovery and resilience plan should set out the detailed set of measures for its implementation, including targets and milestones, and the expected impact of the recovery and resilience plan on growth potential, job creation and economic and social resilience; it should also include measures that are relevant for the green and the digital transitions; it should also include an explanation of the consistency of the proposed recovery and resilience plan with the relevant country-specific challenges and priorities identified in the context of the European Semester. Close cooperation between the Commission and the Member States should be sought and achieved throughout the process.

Amendment 465 #
Proposal for a regulation
Recital 27 a (new)
(27a) Given the short-term focus and the emphasis being placed on the national envelopes in the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, there is a risk that the implementation of the funds merely to meet the deadline would be prioritised over the control and the scrutiny of the initial purpose of the Facility.
