It is noted that the greatest progress has been made in entrepreneurship (81%), public procurement (83%), humanitarian policy (84%), technical barriers to trade (85%), justice, freedom, security, human rights (85%) and political dialogue, national security and defense (89%).

At the same time, the worst situation is observed in the areas of financial cooperation and anti-fraud (24%), transport, transport infrastructure, postal and courier services (35%), and the financial sector (36%).

He expressed hope that both the European Parliament and the relevant committee would "provide strong support."
