European Commission recommends moving onto next stages towards EU entry

"For the candidate and potential candidate countries our policy facilitates a profound transformation. A transformation to a stable, pluralistic democracy which upholds and reinforces the rule of law. A transformation to a functioning market economy and the prospect of long term prosperity. A transformation to a modern society, which fully embraces the values at the heart of the European Union. This same process benefits the European Union and its Member States. At this time of on-going economic uncertainty in Europe, the transformational enlargement process:
- provides stability in the region,
- creates a larger economic space and
- increases the human and cultural capital of our common European home", stated Commissioner Füle on 12 October at the Presentation of the 2011 Enlargement Package.
