The document contains the EU Commission assessments of the 2012 Pre-Accession Economic Programmes (PEP) of the currently 6 candidate countries.

The document contains the EU Commission assessments of the 2012 Pre-Accession Economic Programmes of the 6 candidate countries: Croatia, Iceland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey. The programmes are precursors of similar programmes, which EU Member States are supposed to submit. They should present a short description of recent economic developments, a medium-term macroeconomic framework, a chapter presenting the medium-term fiscal programme and an overview of intended structural reforms. The EU Commission assesses, whether the documents respect the required format and information and whether the programme is plausible and in line with the country's accession perspective.
