According to the European Council on Fores Relations, „the deep and comprehensive free trade agreements signed by the EU with some Eastern Partnership countries appear to have led to an increase in the bloc`s share of exports from some of these countries: to 43% for Ukraine and to 63% for Moldova by 2018. Nevertheless, the EU remains the country`s main trading partner. The case of Moldova, in particular, shows that a relaxation of trade with the EU can mitigate Russian embargoes and reduce their effectiveness as pressure mechanisms on former Soviet states. Not only will these agreements contribute to stability and the promotion of democratic values in the EU`s neighbourhood, but they will also benefit EU businesses by opening up new markets and ensuring a more secure business environment for investment in these three countries. The multilateral framework also allows some countries to go further and sign agreements with the EU. Since today, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia have signed Association Agreements, Comprehensive Agreements between the EU (in accordance with Article 217 TFEU), its Member States and a non-EU country that draw up a plan for cooperation between them. Among the areas that are often covered by such agreements is the development of political, trade, social, cultural and security relations. This introductory analysis contains the opinions on the implementation of the Association Agreements with the Republic of Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine, which are contained in the most recent documents of the EU supervisory and surveillance bodies. Information will also be provided on the participation of the three associated countries in certain EU programmes. It also provides the core of resolutions and recommendations of the European Parliament and reports on the results of the survey on the perception of Moldovan, Georgian and Ukrainian citizens about the EU.

The openness analysis is mainly based on existing EU documents and data. The Association Agreements provide that provisional application will start on the first day of the second month, after the EU and the partner countries concerned have themselves complied with the necessary procedures.. . . .
