Stabilization and Association Agreements (SAA) Training Programm
The SAA training programme is specifically designed for more senior officials of public administration in horizontal and sectoral policy areas of the EU concerned with the requirements related to the Stabilization and Association Process between the European Union and the western Balkan countries (in preparation for “potential EU membership”).
Important issues here include the promotion of regional cooperation, trade liberalization, the compatibility of national administrative structures with EU standards as well as the gradual approximation of national legal norms with those of the Community.
The SAA training programme has been underway in Albania and Macedonia (FYROM) since 2000, and in Serbia since 2005. Up to date, more than twenty SAA workshops involving over 60 national and international experts have been held.
