It is with great pleasure to inform you that our efforts in ratifying the EU-Israel ACAA agreements in the Foreign Affaires Committee of the European Parliament (AFET) paid off, following a tedious and thorough work. The voting passed with an overwhelming majority of 42 for, and 2 against.
This important accomplishment will come to its ultimate test at the INTA committee, where the ACAA agreements will be put to its final stage. If approved, then we could expect the agreements to be ratified and approved by the European Parliament, and the road to further cooperation between the EU and Israel will be underway.
The European Friends of Israel have taken a major step forward and although preparations for the INTA committee vote will be more challenging, we can rest assured that now, more than ever, EFI has a critical role in the overall improvement of relations between the state of Israel and its natural partner - the European Union.
The voting on ACAA agreements at the INTA committee will take probably place this July, and will be hopefully a mile stone of our long lasting efforts at the European Parliament. Thus, we should invest ourselves towards the final stage of this important move, and try to win it over, for the benefit of the citizens of the EU with more accessible health and pharmaceutical products.
