Establishing policy frameworks

Pre-accession economic programmes help countries that are candidates for EU membership prepare to participate in the economic and fiscal governance and policy coordination procedures of the EU’s economic and monetary union.

The objective of pre-accession economic programmes is to outline the appropriate medium-term financial policy framework needed for EU accession.

The programmes help countries develop the institutional and analytical capacity needed to participate in the EU's economic and monetary union, particularly in the areas of economic and fiscal governance and policy coordination.
