Maricic: EU Enlargement Negotiations May Accelerate Reforms

Justice Minister Bojan Maricic took part in the online debate organised by the Friedrich Ebert foundation, titled “Securing of mechanisms for rule of law in context of EU enlargement”. “The start of the accession talks is crucial for definition of the tempo of the reforms. The sooner we start these talks with the EU, the better the implementation of the reforms. We welcome the new enlargement methodology adopted by the EU in 2020, because it provides greater credibility in the process of enlargement. We all need to be aware of the great influence the EU enlargement process can have over the implementation of reforms,” Maricic said.
