The 5th Eastern Partnership Summit will take place on the 24th of November, in Brussels.
The aim is 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.
The event wants to answer some of the present day uncertainties such as: 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?
