Over the past two years, there has been progress in EU–Belarus relations. Belarus has been participating more pro-actively in the Eastern Partnership, in particular in the multilateral formats. Tangible steps taken by Belarus to respect universal freedoms, the rule of law, and human rights, including fundamental labour rights, will remain fundamental criteria for the shaping of the EU’s future policy towards Belarus. The EU considers that the WTO accession process should top the agenda. Belarus’ accession to the WTO would contribute to the creation of a more predictable and stable business environment in the country.
