The Eastern Partnership during the Estonian EU Council Presidency

The priorities for the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU focused on the development of a more innovative, secure, digital, and inclusive Europe.

The political guidelines also envisaged support to the Eastern Partnership and helping them get closer to the EU as a cornerstone for a safe and secure Europe. Foreign Minister Sven Mikser visited all six Eastern Partnership countries before the Presidency began.

The Estonian Center of Eastern Partnership (ECEAP) was involved both in the preparations and the operation of the Presidency on a daily basis. The Presidency offered us a unique opportunity to both utilize and extend our network of contacts among like-minded countries and donor organizations while at the same time raising public awareness about the accomplishments and objectives of the Eastern Partnership itself.
