Lá gnóEU-China talks on an investment and market access accord will touch interests that are highly sensitive for the EU public. They must therefore be conducted “with the highest possible level of transparency” and subject to parliamentary oversight. This will be a precondition for the European Parliament’s consent to the deal, which will be required later, warns the International Trade Committee in a resolution voted on 17 September.

Ba é an beart seo, a dearadh chun infheisteoirí a chosaint ar an dá thaobh, an chéad cheann ó rinne Conradh Liospóin infheistíocht dhíreach choigríche mar inniúlacht eisiach AE. Thiocfadh sé in áit 26 comhaontú déthaobhach infheistíochta atá ag ballstáit an AE leis an tSín inniu.

MEPs say that the talks should start only after China has formally agreed to put its market access rules on the negotiating table and that any deal must deliver greater equality between the two sides’ investment environments. The resolution, drafted by Helmut Scholz (GUE/NGL, DE), was passed by 25 votes to 2 with 3 abstentions.

Comhionannas na dtimpeallachtaí infheistíochta

Whereas the Chinese perceive the EU as a stable investment environment, EU firms’ investments in China are often burdened by, inter alia, the review mechanism that China uses to “filter” foreign investments and the strategic technology transfers demanded in exchange for allowing foreign investors in, notes the text. Any deal must therefore remove these burdens and level the playing field for competition between China’s state-run firms and the EU’s private ones, it adds.

Eisceacht chultúrtha

Iarrann FPEanna go ndéanfar seirbhísí cultúrtha agus closamhairc a eisiamh ó na cainteanna rochtana margaidh. Ba cheart don mhargadh seirbhísí poiblí san AE a chosaint agus a chinntiú go gcomhlíontar caighdeáin cosanta sonraí an AE, a deir siad.

Clásail shóisialta agus chomhshaoil

Aiseolas

Ba cheart go n-áireofaí in aon déileáil freagracht shóisialta chorparáideach cheangailteach, clásail shóisialta agus chomhshaoil, a deir an téacs.

Scrios infheistíocht an AE in earraí saothair éigeantacha na Síne

Goods produced in China’s Laogai forced labour camps, “should not benefit from investments made under this bilateral investment agreement”, say MEPs.

Na chéad chéimeanna eile

A resolution setting out Parliament’s demands will be put to a plenary vote at the October I session, shortly before EU Council of Ministers is expected to authorize the launch of EU-China bilateral investment talks. Once the deal is struck, Parliament’s consent will be needed in order for it to enter in force.
