Dear Mr Völker,

Please find attached a reply to your request for access to documents GESTDEM 2021/ 1191.

Kind regards,

Nik Völker, MiningWatch Portugal


Thanks for your below communication, Ref. Ares(2021)2014177 22/03/2021.

While I appreciate the information supplied, a link to the "draft Recovery and Resilience Plan of Portugal", being subject to a recent public consultation from 15/02/2021 to 01/03/2021 [1], I do not consider it satisfactory in terms of the request initially filed on 02/03/2021, registered with the third party platform AskTheEU under [2], and which I want to replicate below. Under Regulation 1049/2001 it solicited the following information:

> Recovery and Resilience "Plan" and "Program" delivered, e.g. as a "draft version" 15-10-2020, to the Commission by the XXIIth Government of the Portuguese Republic

As specified in the original request, I'm specifically interested in the information delivered to and thus held by the Commission since October 2020. The request for information does not make any references to later or otherwise modified versions of the same information, e.g. the above referenced document in public consultation during February 2020, accessible under [1].

I'd thus ask you to check if the Commission or any of its services, including SG RECOVER, hold such information as identified above, submitted to the Commission by the XXIIth Government of the Portuguese Republic in October 2020. In case you can identify such information, I do request access under Regulation 1049/2001. In case you are unable to identify such information, I equally request notification as defined by the same Regulation.

Please also note that you have probably erroneously associated your response Ref. Ares(2021)2014177 22/03/2021 on this topic with another request for information, filed with DG ENV and registered with AskTheEU under [3], "Contract Guidelines for Best Risk Management Approaches in the Extractive Sector", and not with the correct feed associated to this request on the "Portuguese Recovery and Resilience Plan" under [2]. I'd thus appreciate if you could check the association of the response filed on the third party platform.

Anything else I can contribute to clarify this request, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best regards

Nik Völker
