The 6th EU Eastern Partnership (EaP) Summit will take place on 15 December when leaders of the EU and the Eastern partner countries meet in Brussels. As the Summit approaches, a dedicated page on the EU Neighbours east website – https://euneighbourseast.eu/eapsummit/ – provides all the latest news, information and resources on the main priorities of the Eastern Partnership agenda.
The special EaP Summit page includes all the latest news, explainers on key issues – why the summit matters, EU COVID support for the region, and the EU’s new investment plan for the EaP – factsheets highlighting national priorities for each country, and resources for media covering the Summit.
The Summit will focus on support to five key areas – economy, governance, the environment, digital and society. These priorities build on the past achievements of the European Neighbourhood instrument, taking into account new challenges and opportunities – notably the green and digital transition, as well as the post-pandemic recovery.

EU NEIGHBOURS east is implemented by a B&S Europe-led consortium. It is part of the larger Neighbourhood Communication Programme (2020-2024) for the EU's Eastern and Southern Neighbourhood, which also includes 'EU NEIGHBOURS south’ project that runs the EU Neighbours portal.
