EC Communication - Global Europe : A New Approach to financing EU external actionBack
This EC Communication outlines the the way Europe deals with the international partners including the investments in external relations and actions. In this frame it discusses the reasons for engagement, the EU added value, strategic objectives, underlying principles, the revised and simplivied programming process, a brief outline of the proposed structure.
It is outlined that the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) will remain the financial pillar of the Enlargement Strategy, encompassing all aspects of internal policies and thematic issues. The aim will be to ensure that candidate countries and potential candidates are fully prepared for possible accession by encouraging them to adapt emerging EU strategies and policies into their national priorities. Emphasis will be placed on support for political reforms, notably strengthening the democratic institutions and the rule of law and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms, socio-economic development, regional cooperation, adopting and implementing the acquis, EU 2020 objectives, and preparing to manage internal policies upon eventual accession. The coherence between the financial support and the overall progress made in the implementation of the pre-accession strategy will be strengthened.
