EU4Business community of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) have come together to highlight the importance of the ongoing transformative process of Eastern partnership countries’ economies into market-driven economies, which generates both challenges and opportunities.
We hereby convey to you, the Governments of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, the European Union and the donor community, our concerns and recommendations which we should work on together to improve conditions for growth and for the best possible business climate. The degree of the challenges and recommendations varies from country to country in the EaP region.
The transformation process and the implementation of necessary reforms can only be done by involving the private sector in the policy making process. We, the business support, and private sector organisations call upon the political decision makers to consider EU4Business as partners for the design and implementation of the reform processes, strategies for economic development, and regional cooperation.
We call for a systematic Public – Private Dialogue (PPD) for SMEs, conducted on a regular basis, focusing on concrete topics in an appropriate timeframe and in a language understandable to SMEs.
We welcome the launch of the web portal EU4Business consolidating all necessary information for the business community of the EaP countries.
