Welcome to Vienna !

Following up on the successful Eastern Partnership Summit in November last year in Brussels, it is now time to take stock of the achievements within the 20 Deliverables for 2020 which best demonstrate tangible results reached in 2018. The 2018 monitoring of the “20 Deliverables for 2020” indicates that specific attention has been paid to supporting Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, creating and sustaining job opportunities in Partner Countries, and to fostering skills development in line with market demands. Moreover, the EU has launched a substantial Youth & Education Package in 2018 with the aim to create the necessary conditions for youth to study, work, participate fully in society and fulfill their potential for the future of the region.

In this context, you are cordially invited to join us in a productive dialogue discussion at the high-level conference "A stronger economy for stronger societies - Investing in people for sustainable growth" hosted jointly by the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the EU together with the European Commission and the European External Action Service. Dr Karin Kneissl, Austrian Federal Minister for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs and Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations, will open the event, which will be followed by panel discussions aiming to identify main challenges and opportunities, exchanging examples of best practice as well as giving recommendations for concrete actions.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!
