Framework of Eastern Partnership will make every member stronger, an EU official said during a briefing via a video-conference dedicated to the upcoming 5th Eastern Partnership Summit to be held in Brussels.
“We have moved forward with four priority areas agreed in Riga: stronger economy - economic development and better market opportunities; stronger governance - strengthening of institutions and good governance; stronger connectivity - enhancing interconnections, notably in the areas of transport and energy; stronger society - increasing mobility and contacts between people,” said the official.
The 5th Eastern Partnership (EaP) summit will take place in Brussels on 24 November.
Heads of state or government from the EU member states and the six Eastern Partnership countries (Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Armenia) will look forward to future cooperation.
They will also take stock of what has been achieved since the last summit in Riga in 2015, focusing on the tangible benefits delivered to the citizens of the six Eastern Partnership countries.
