The development of modern and effective administration structures in the EU Accession countries (in the following named as CC (Candidate countries)) is a basic precondition for the complete adoption of the acquis communitaire. This is the EU common standard on legislative, social and economic parameters. This so called institution building process in the middle and eastern European countries (MOE countries) has been supported since 1998 from the EU through a partnership process instrument called “twinning”. This has been financed through the Phare programme with about 500 Mio € a year until 2002.
