International cooperation - Overview

Introduction

Cooperation

With whom does Eurostat cooperate?

As the statistical office of the European Union, Eurostat supports the EU external actions. In this respect, Eurostat closely cooperates with third countries as well as organisations in Europe and world-wide. These include:

  • Enlargement countries: candidate countries and potential candidates; 
  • European neighbouring countries (ENP): ENP-East countries and ENP-South countries; 
  • Development cooperation with regional bodies in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and other international cooperation, including international organisations (and high income countries).

What information can I find here?

This overview page provides a general entry to the above mentioned three groups and points you to the latest highlights and readings on the subject of Eurostat's international cooperation. 

Each of the three groups has a  separate dedicated section on the Eurostat website in which you can find more detailed information. To access them, please see the box below 'Are you looking for information on…'.
