Joint Staff Working Document (JSWD) published by the European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on 2 July 2021, putting forward a set of priorities for cooperation in the framework of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) going forward.

Further information:

The priorities were set out in line with the broader framework laid out by the Joint Communication on Eastern Partnership policy beyond 2020. This includes five long-term objectives, with resilience at its core. The proposed agenda aims at increasing trade, growth and jobs, investing in connectivity, strengthening democratic institutions and the rule of law, supporting the green and digital transitions, and promoting fair, gender-equal and inclusive societies. The plan is underpinned by a €2.3 billion Economic and Investment plan in grants, blending and guarantees, with a potential to mobilise up to €17 billion in public and private investments.

The agenda focuses on recovery, resilience and reform, includes a selection of the top ten targets for 2025 with clear commitments in all the priority areas of cooperation. It also proposes a revision of the EaP multilateral architecture to adjust the framework to the new priorities and make it fully fit for purpose.
