02/09/2008 Telecoms Package Plenary Speeches

Madam President, in this final intervention I want to thank the Council for its availability, that has again proved today. I also

want to thank, and a lot, to the Commission, in particular to the Commissioner, the sensibility she has always proved in her fireproof defense –I would say- of an electronic communication market more competitive and of the protection to consumers. And I also want to make public my gratitude, in a very first place, to my colleagues, who, both here today and in previous working days, have proved up to which point are they sensitive to the importance this sector has for european economic growth and hence, for the employment and the

welfare of all the citizens of Europe.

Now, I want to just ask the Council that, in this final period to the end of the current Presidency, give this Telecom package at least a similar priority to the one given to energy –what is very important, but this package is not less important- in order we can advance from this point of equilibrium we have found and that has just pointed out my colleague Trautmann.

The Parliament offers a series of proposals, in general very well balanced, I would say, that in a later stage, during the negociations with the Council and the Commission, could solve this problem successfully. Thank you very much. We expected a lot from the Presidency in this sense.
