From the Executive Director

The year 2016 opened new doors for the REC as it enters a transitional period and faces a new global landscape in terms of the technical assistance it provides. The year was marked by strategic, financial, policy-related and operational challenges. In responding to these challenges, the REC will continue, with even greater determination, to pursue its mission and maintain its focus on supporting its beneficiaries and responding to stakeholders’ needs, working in a spirit of innovation to strengthen solutions in EU Neighbourhood and Enlargement countries. 


The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.
