European Commission states: Ukraine well on reform track.
Macroeconomic situation stabilized, reform agenda advanced, structural reforms kicked-off, EU-Ukraine trade figures increased. Overall, the European Commission states that Ukraine is well on track to implement the association agenda – despite the annexation of Crimea and the armed conflict in Donbas.
Successful reforms are key to the effective and swift implementation of the AA/DCFTA. Motivated and knowledgeable expert capacities both for state administration and among civil society are essential to ensure the reform speed and quality. With our Civic School for Sound EU Practice entering its specialization phase in November, IEP is ready to further strengthening civil society throughout the country.
IEP, as member of the EU-Ukraine Domestic Advisory Group on Trade and Sustainable Development chapter, is looking forward to our joint meeting with the Ukrainian side in 2018 and to good progress in the implementation ofDCFTA Chapter 13 “Trade and Sustainable Development”.
