The launch of the Berlin process was a way to confirm the EU’s continued commitment to the region’s accession and to give a new momentum to the enlargement process. In line with its long-standing support for enlargement, Germany initiated a political process complementary to the EU integration process, with the aim to provide a framework for closer regional cooperation in view of achieving sustainable economic growth, fully-fledged market democracy, and reconciliation. The envisaged format is five consecutive summits taking place from 2014 to 2018, marking respectively the 100th anniversary of the start and end of the First World War.
