EU Enlargement Package 2016

Each year the Commission adopts its “Enlargement package” – a set of documents explaining its policy on EU enlargement. Most importantly, this package includes a Communication on enlargement which sets out the way forward (Enlargement Strategy Paper ) and takes stock of the situation in the candidate countries and potential candidates. In addition to this communication, the package contains the Reports in which the Commission services present their detailed assessment of the state of play in each candidate country and potential candidate, what has been achieved over the last year, and set out guidelines on reform priorities.
