This is evidenced by the results of the analytical report “Progress of Ukraine in the achievement of the 20 key deliverables for 2020 for the Eastern Partnership”, presented by the experts of the Ukrainian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum.
"The use of the Eastern Partnership resources can be an additional factor in the effective implementation of the bilateral dimension of the EU-Ukraine interaction," said Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
The report indicates that Ukraine is advancing most actively in the fight against corruption, the public administration reform, the security reform, the development of small and medium-sized business, the introduction of the free trade area with the EU, the environmental protection and visa liberalisation.
The 20 key deliverables for 2020 for the Eastern Partnership is a kind of European integration roadmap, which defines the goals and reforms to be carried out by Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus until 2020.
“Ukraine’s activity can be explained by the fact that the overwhelming majority of the goals, which the EU has set for Ukraine until 2020, echoes the objectives of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement to some extent. This contributes to the implementation of additional reforms that are important for Ukrainians. At the same time, the 20 key deliverables for 2020 are not as binding for the Eastern Partnership countries as the association agreement. Each of the six partners can choose the number of deliverables and the level of their use, which corresponds to the level of their ambitions on the path of integration into the EU. We believe that Ukraine should take advantage of the financial support within the framework of the 20 key deliverables for 2020 for the Eastern Partnership, which will facilitate the implementation of major reforms and the association agreement,” said Hennadiy Maksak, the national coordinator of the Ukrainian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum.
