Ukraine

Ukraine has been a priority partner country for Estonia’s bilateral development cooperation since 2006. Furthermore, Ukraine was the first beneficiary country in 1998 when Estonia started to provide bilateral aid.  Estonia has contributed over 9 million euros towards supporting Ukraine’s development throughout the years, out of which 6 million were allocated between 2014–2016.

The focus of the bilateral development co-operation is on the actions which would support the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement. In 2017, Estonian development co-operation with Ukraine concentrates on democracy building and good governance (incl e-governance and ICT solutions in public administration), as well as support for business environment and education. The main beneficiaries of the bilateral development co-operation are governmental  and non-governmental organizations, local governments, universities and etc.

Eastern Partnership Training Centre

Starting from January 2011 the Eastern Partnership Training Centre began to operate in Tallinn. Based on the experiences of Estonian School of Diplomacy, the training centre has been created for arranging training programs and seminars related to various aspects of good governance reform to the government officials from EU Eastern Partnership countries, including Ukraine. An important aspect of the work of the centre is enhancing the regional cooperation and integration of the Eastern Partnership Countries.
The activities of the Centre are funded from the development co-operation budget of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
