The European Commission is conducting public consultations about its external financial instruments and invites all stakeholders in beneficiary and EU countries to give its contribution in the period from 7 February 2017 to 3 May 2017. The Commission should present a midterm review of the instruments of the European Parliament and the Council by the end of 2017, for which it has commissioned independent evaluations for each instrument. The aim of the public consultation is to gather feedback on the conclusions from the evaluations from the broadest possible range of stakeholders as well as to gather preliminary ideas on the future external financing instruments after the current ones have expired by 31 December 2020. Here you can find all the information about the consultations. The draft evaluation reports for the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA II) can be found here .
