The present project represents one of the six projects which constitute the second phase of the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) programme interventions to support Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries to counter economic crime. It is based on the results achieved during the first implementation phase of the PGG programme (2015-2018), as well as from Council of Europe Eastern Partnership Facility (2011-2014).

Regional activities engaging all six countries allows for mobilisation of Council of Europe expertise, peer-to-peer reviews and advice, and the exchange of good practices among participating countries.

The overall objective of the Regional project is to strengthen capacities of Eastern Partnership countries to fight and prevent economic crime. It will focus on areas that present shared challenges to the EaP countries and will contribute to advancing the understanding and adoption of new tools and mechanisms to effectively tackle corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing, in keeping with the targets under the EU 2020 Deliverables.
