Resolution adopted unanimously by the Assembly on 17.04.2015
Enforcing the measures of Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8th May 2000 should enable to halt the introduction and dissemination of organisms harmful to plants on the territory of the European Union.

The AREV requests that the Commission take these initiatives promptly.
