Global Europe Program
Mapping the development of the Eastern Partnership initiative, the European Commission released a progress report on the six Eastern Partnership States: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. The report outlines accomplishments achieved so far and indicates critical policy areas where more attention is needed. It also serves as a reference for the EU’s approach towards the Eastern Partnership and, more specifically, the allocation of funding in the next seven years. This assessment comes one month after the EU discussed the “European Package” of incentives, intended to supplement the Association Agreements being discussed with several of the six states. Georgia and Moldova have initialed the Association Agreements last year and will be among the first countries to sign them this year.
