Ukraine is one of the priority partner countries for Estonia and the two countries have been working together for over 10 years. Estonian development co-operation with Ukraine concentrates on education, good governance and democracy-building, as well as support for economic development and environmental sustainability. The main beneficiaries of the bilateral development co-operation are non-governmental organizations, local governments, universities and etc. The majority of the development co-operation has been carried out in Chernigov region.
In 2015, the focus of the bilateral development co-operation is on the actions which would support the Ukraine-EU association agreement. The main areas are developing good-governance, promoting business environment and facilitating regional development.
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.
