The main changes in relation to the IPA I are policy areas that will assist reforms, capacity building, investment, regulation legislation, and sectoral approach to assistance aimed at strengthening financial assistance and policy in the context of EU integration. Thus, IPA II focuses on a small number of strategic sectors identified by the beneficiary countries and the EU institutions, and funding through this program is aligned with national priorities. Strategic basis for implementation of IPA II consists of the EU National planning documents and Strategic planning documents. Basic strategic document for IPA II is Agenda Europe 2020.
