On 26 July, the EU announced that it has opened a broad and inclusive structured consultation on the future strategic direction of the Eastern Partnership (EaP).
According to the EU, the strengthened cooperation between the EU, its Member States, and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine in the framework of the Eastern Partnership has proven to be mutually beneficial and has been delivering concrete results for citizens over the past decade.
The joint reform agenda of the “20 Deliverables for 2020” has successfully achieved key progress in working towards building stronger economies, stronger governance, stronger connectivity and stronger societies across the region. To mark the 10th anniversary of the initiative, a High Level Conference took place on 14 May, during which the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, launched discussions on the future of the Eastern Partnership.
All stakeholders are invited to submit their contributions on this website by 31 October 2019. Dedicated consultation events will be also held in partner countries and in the EU during this period.
Based on these inputs, a document will be prepared to outline the proposed new framework for the post-2020 Eastern Partnership.
