High–level Ministerial Seminar on the 10th Anniversary of the Eastern Partnership - A new political vision for the EaP?
The Eastern Partnership is celebrating its 10-year’s anniversary. In 2009, Sweden and Poland proposed a political cooperation called the Eastern Partnership, with the purpose of strengthening and deepening the political and economic relationships between the EU and six neighbouring countries to the East and the South Caucasus region.
In light of this anniversary, the European Commission and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs are hosting a high-level seminar, with representatives from the partnership countries. This is an occasion to take stock and discuss the progress made, but even more importantly, to look ahead and highlight the next important steps in order to feed into the on-going consultation on the future of the Eastern Partnership.
H.E. Foreign Minister Ann Linde, H.E Minister of Foreign Affairs Jacek Czaputowicz and the six partnership countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the republic of Moldova, Ukraine and the European Commission will discuss the value of an ambitious EU policy for Eastern Europe, how to profit from a deepened and continued cooperation, as well as what areas the Eastern Partnership should focus on in the future.
