The 5th Eastern Partnership summit

What to expect?

The 5th Eastern Partnership (EaP) summit will take place in Brussels on November 24th. Launched in 2009, the EaP aims to promote political association and economic integration between the EU and six Eastern European partner countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The participants will take stock of the progress made since the last summit in Riga in 2015 and attempt to find a pragmatic way forward to deliver tangible results for their citizens. There are several uncertainties surrounding the event. Will reference to ‘membership aspiration’ be retained in the text of the final declaration?  Will the Comprehensive and Enhanced Cooperation Agreement (CEPA) recently negotiated with Armenia be ready for signature and become one of the Summit’s main deliverables?  Will all EaP leaders participate in the Summit?
