A Eurasianet partner post from RFE/RL

BRUSSELS -- The European Commission has presented its annual European Neighborhood Package, detailing political and economic development in its six eastern neighbors, as well as countries in the southern Mediterranean.

The package will be a key factor in determining how much EU funds that will be granted to the individual member states later this year.

Stefan Fuele, the EU commissioner for enlargement and neighborhood policy, said in Brussels that the EU needs to increase efforts to help the countries in the report meet goals to become members of the European Union.

"The Eastern Partnership countries need our continued support to deliver on their commitments, and it is my conviction that they deserve an ambitious future," Fuele said.

This year's report shows that Georgia, Moldova, and to a certain extent Armenia have reformed the most in the recent year and will benefit from additional funds from Brussels.

Here are highlights of the report that pertain to countries in RFE/RL's broadcast area.
