Ecco il questionario degli eurodeputati per Gentiloni: al centro fisco e patto di stabilità

Il 3 ottobre il commissario Ue designato per l'Economia farà la sua audizione/esame al Parlamento europeo. Sul tavolo la revisione del Semestre europeo, la trasparenza in ambito legislativo e la disoccupazione. I testi delle domande

Bruxelles – Patto di stabilità, revisione del quadro fiscale dell’Unione europea (in particolare con riguardo agli effetti pro-ciclici, agli investimenti e agli squilibri macroeconomici) e, non ultimo, il cambiamento climatico.

Sono questi gli argomenti principali su cui gli eurodeputati si sono concentrati nelle domande a risposta scritta inviate a Paolo Gentiloni, il quale dovrà rispondere per iscritto entro il 3 ottobre, quando si svolgerà la sua audizione/esame al Parlamento Ue, quando questi temi, saranno probabilmente approfonditi. Al commissario in pectore per l’Economia a Bruxelles viene chiesto come intende agire in termini di trasparenza e cooperazione nell’iniziativa legislativa in Parlamento e su cosa punterà per la revisione del Semestre europeo, il ciclo di coordinamento delle politiche economiche e di bilancio nell’ambito dell’Ue. Altro focus del questionario, l’agenda fiscale. Gli eurodeputati chiedono a Gentiloni quali sono le sue priorità in merito e come intende promuovere un sistema fiscale più moderno, semplice ed equo, tenendo conto della riforma internazionale in corso, promossa dal G20 (compreso il tema dell’aliquota minima effettiva per le imprese), dell’economia digitale e del cambiamento climatico. Inoltre, gli eurodeputati vogliono sapere da Gentiloni il suo punto di vista circa l’idea di abolire l’unanimità nelle decisioni del Consiglio europeo.

In fondo al questionario, il tema disoccupazione. L’eletto commissario Ue per l’Economia dovrà spiegare ai deputati come intende disegnare lo schema di assicurazione contro la disoccupazione.

Ecco il testo inviato a Gentiloni:
