On 24th November, the next summit between the European Union and its Eastern partners should allow the creation of a trust fund and reward reforms by allowing entry into the customs union.
MEPs welcomed the significant progress made since the last Eastern Partnership summit in Riga in 2015. They underlined that some Eastern partners have made major reforms and that Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova now benefit from free trade agreements and visa-free regimes with the EU.
Moreover, they would like to establish a deeper Eastern Partnership with these countries under the European Neighbourhood Instrument.
