Pisonero: Von der Leyen’s Visit Indicator of Importance Attached to Enlargement

According to European Commission Spokesperson Ana Pisonero, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen’s visit to the Western Balkans is a clear indicator of the big importance the EU attaches to enlargement.

As she said on Tuesday, enlargement, primarily with Western Balkan countries, has been one of the main priorities of the Commission since the start of its term.

Regarding the Growth Plan, Pisonero stated that it should basically speed up the economic connectivity between countries from the region and the EU, as well as to bring them closer to the European single market, which would result in benefits before membership.
