The objective of this review is to assess the performance of Phare support in assisting the candidate countries to achieve the objectives of the pre-accession strategy. It covers the support allocated in the years 1999-2002 and implemented up to November 2003. The report makes recommendations which should guide the development of assistance to remaining and future candidates as well as to the new Member States.
The report first reviews overall Phare Programme performance and assesses progress, and then recommends how future support should be directed towards the three key objectives in the pre-accession strategy:
• Building public administrative capacity to apply the acquis
• Supporting ESC in preparation for Structural Funds
• Building capacity to coordinate and deliver pre-accession assistance
