This Enlargement Paper brings together into a single document the Directorate General for Economic and Financial Affairs evaluations of the third Pre-Accession Economic Programmes (PEPs) of the acceding and candidate countries.
One of the economic priorities of the 1999 and 2000 Accession Partnerships was the establishment of an annual fiscal surveillance for the candidate countries.
This gave birth to the so-called Pre-Accession Fiscal Surveillance Procedure, which aims at preparing countries for the participation in the multilateral surveillance and economic policy co-ordination procedures currently in place in the EU as part of the Economic and Monetary Union. The Pre-Accession Economic Programmes (PEPs) are part of this procedure.
