European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI)
European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) is aimed at supporting political, economic and social reform processes in the following neighbouring countries of the European Union: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia, and Ukraine. ENP aims to strengthen prosperity, stability, security, the market economy and sustainable growth through a continuous dialogue with each partner country.
The action plans setting up the short-term and medium-term priorities for each partner country are among the key instruments of this policy. Although the action plans are tailored to each of the neighbouring countries, they generally refer to a number of common activities, ranging from political dialogue to trade-related issues and economic and social cooperation.
Since 2007 the implementation of individual country programmes has been funded by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), which also provides financial support for the Strategic Partnership with Russia. For the 2007-13 period the ENPI budget is worth some €12 billion.
