EU is seeking an increasingly close relationship with Ukraine

The EU is seeking an increasingly close relationship with Ukraine, going beyond mere bilateral co-operation, to gradual economic integration and a deepening of political co-operation. European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood policy Stefan Füle signed (Brussels, 2 March 2011) a Memorandum of Understanding on the National Indicative Programme for Ukraine for €470 million Euros for the period of 2011-13. Assistance for Ukraine should focus on three priority areas: Good Governance, Rule of Law Facilitation (entry into force of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement) and Sustainable Development.
