Statement by Benita Ferrero-Waldner on the European Neighbourhood Policy

55 views

On 3 September 2007, the European Commission organised a Conference on the European Neighbourhood Policy. For the first time, Ministers from the countries covered by this policy and of the EU came together to exchange views on the way forward for the policy. For Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, it was the occasion to learn from each other's experience. In a statement she made before the conference, she explained the importance of the policy and of the conference, and she welcomed the result of a survey conducted by Eurobarometer which showed that a significant majority of people in the EU Member States support efforts to intensify co-operation with the countries neighbouring the Union. The overwhelming majority of those polled believe that working with neighbours on fighting organised crime and terrorism, on environment and energy, and on immigration, is important. Most Europeans believe that EU assistance to its neighbours can serve to extend peace and democracy beyond the borders of the Union, and around half believe that neighbouring countries are indeed willing to co-operate with the EU to introduce internal reforms.
