The Commission published its annual reports on the advances toward EU membership made by Croatia, Turkey, Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo.
The strategy paper speaks of "putting the crisis behind us," "restoring growth for jobs through the 2020 reform agenda" and "making the EU a safer place and pulling [the EU's] weight on the world stage".
State of play:
Croatia: Steady progress
Macedonia: 'Name issue' holds back progress
Montenegro: Corruption prevalent in many areas
Albania: Institutions still unstable
Bosnia and Herzegovina in need of a 'vision'
Serbia: Important steps toward reconciliation
Kosovo: Still at odds with its Serb minority
Turkey invited to adopt new civilian constitution
Iceland: Accession process launched
