 CLECAT:

On 1 April 2015, the European Commission (DG TAXUD) opened a new webpage dedicated to the Association Agreements signed between the EU and Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine in 2014. The webpage provides the complete Association Agreements and the agendas describing the agreed priorities for the period 2014-2016.

The Commission also published the Strategic Frameworks endorsed by the EU together with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. These Frameworks are the basis for the customs cooperation between the EU and these countries. They are based on priorities such as safe and fluid trade lanes, risk management and fight against fraud, and investment in customs modernization.

The medium-term priorities for Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine will be accession to the Regional Convention on pan-Euro-Mediterranean preferential rules of origin, the Convention on a common transit and implementation of the Authorised Economic Operator schemes.
