"Member States cannot face the challenges brought by immigration alone. There is a need for a greater solidarity to ensure that no Member State is facing a disproportionate amount of pressure due to its geographical situation. A common policy on immigration and integration is needed to benefit from migratory fluxes."
Panagiotis Gkofas, rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'

"Europe must manage its immigration policy in collaboration with third countries. European external borders are common borders. Solidarity must be strengthened to welcome new refugees and protect the human rights of immigrants."
Luis Miguel Pariza Castanos, co-rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'

    Completing Europe's Economic and Monetary Union Position paper – July 2014

    "EMU, which is substantially more than what is being discussed on the table now, is indispensable to re-create confidence in the European project. Only its completion and full implementation will encourage investments and boost growth and jobs."
    Joost van Iersel, co-rapporteur on ‘Completing EMU – The next European legislature’

    "The existing EMU is an anachronistic legal and economic system, that has shown itself to be totally ineffective in the face of the crisis. So we are proposing that within the next five years, the missing pillars should be put in place... This is a real challenge for all of us as Europeans. Will politicians be capable of meeting it?”
    Carmelo Cedrone, co-rapporteur on ‘Completing EMU – The next European legislature’
