Details

The rapporteur, Mr Arias Cañete (EPP, E), referred to the reduction in fishing opportunities for the Community fleet provided for under the terms of the agreement, while at the same time focusing on the socio-economic impact of the agreement and the high level of financial compensation involved (ECU 500 million over 4 years). The rapporteur was critical of the fact that Parliament had only been consulted late in the day; however, he welcomed the good level of interinstitutional cooperation and the use of the assent procedure, in accordance with the process outlined in the second paragraph of Article 228(3), which was the first time such a measure had been used for an international fisheries agreement; finally, he stressed that the Community would henceforth need to focus on the various problems affecting those regions and communities that were dependent on the fishing industry. Commissioner Bonino referred to the difficult nature of the negotiations and described the agreement as satisfactory and well-balanced. She accepted that Parliament had been consulted somewhat late, but said that the Commission had made efforts to keep Parliament informed of developments. Mrs Bonino concluded by stating that it did not make economic sense to be 100% dependent on fishing in third-country waters.
