The Eastern Partnership aims to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union, its Member States and partner countries, in line with the principles of inclusiveness and differentiation, including through tailor made approaches and incentive-based enhanced cooperation. Building on the ‘20 deliverables for 2020’, the Joint Communication of March 2020 and the Council Conclusions of May 2020, the EU has proposed a set of post-2020 Eastern Partnership priorities. In line with the five policy objectives, these priorities will strengthen resilience of the partner countries by investing in two pillars: investment and governance. This factsheet also describes the cooperation’s key new element – the Economic and Investment plan. This will mobilise €2.3 billion from the EU budget, in grants, blending and guarantees, to support the post-pandemic recovery and to sustainably transform the economies of the Eastern Partnership to make them more resilient and integrated.

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.
