DECISION (EU) 2021/886 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 20 May 2021

on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund following an application from Estonia – EGF/2020/002 EE/Estonia Tourism

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006 (1), and in particular Article 15(4) thereof,

Having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 16 December 2020 between the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management, as well as on new own resources, including a roadmap towards the introduction of new own resources (2), and in particular point 9 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aims to provide support for workers made redundant and self-employed persons whose activity has ceased as a result of major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, as a result of a continuation of the global financial and economic crisis, or as a result of a new global financial and economic crisis, and to assist them with their reintegration into the labour market.

(2)

The EGF is not to exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 186 million (2018 prices), as laid down in Article 8(1) of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2020/2093 (3).

(3)

On 12 November 2020 Estonia submitted an application to mobilise the EGF, in respect of redundancies and cessations of activities (hereafter referred to as ‘redundancies’) in the tourism industry, defined by the economic sectors classified under the Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community (‘NACE’) Revision 2 Division 45 (Wholesale and retail trade and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles), 49 (Land transport and transport via pipelines), 50 (Water transport), 51 (Air transport), 52 (Warehousing and support activities for transportation), 55 (Accommodation), 56 (Food and beverage service activities), 74 (Other professional, scientific and technical activities), 77 (Rental and leasing activities), 79 (Travel agency, tour operator and other reservation service and related activities), 90 (Creative, arts and entertainment activities), 91 (Libraries, archives, museums and other cultural activities), 92 (Gambling and betting activities), 93 (Sports activities and amusement and recreation activities), in Estonia. The Republic of Estonia is one unit in the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (‘NUTS’) (4) level 2 regions. The application was supplemented by additional information provided in accordance with Article 8(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013. It complies with the requirements for determining a financial contribution from the EGF as laid down in Article 13 of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013.

(4)

In accordance with Article 4(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013, the application from Estonia is considered admissible since the redundancies have a serious impact on employment and the national economy.

(5)

The EGF should, therefore, be mobilised in order to provide a financial contribution of EUR 4 474 480 in respect of the application submitted by Estonia.

(6)

In order to minimise the time taken to mobilise the EGF, this decision should apply from the date of its adoption,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

For the general budget of the Union for the financial year 2021, the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund shall be mobilised to provide the amount of EUR 4 474 480 in commitment and payment appropriations.

Article 2

This decision shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 20 May 2021.

Done at Brussels, 20 May 2021.
