Política de alargamento da UE volta à agenda
October 2, 2023 - Os líderes europeus vão reunir-se na cidade espanhola de Granada a 5-6 Out, com o alargamento do bloco de 27 membros de novo na agenda.
Eight countries currently have official EU candidate status – Turkiye, Ukraine, Moldova, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia – while two, Georgia and Kosovo, are potential candidate countries.
EU Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi said the EU would make internal reforms in parallel with preparations made by candidate countries to meet complex EU entry criteria.
To help the candidates reform faster, the European Commission would present in the next two weeks a package of measures that would offer the candidates gradual EU market access as well as additional cash, Varhelyi said, according to Reuters.
