Until almost two months ago, the European Union Summit in Zagreb, which will be held on 6 May in the form of a video-conference, was regularly planned as one of the most important political and economic events during the Croatian EU Council presidency. One of its crucial components was supposed to be the Summit of leaders from the EU and the so-called Western Balkans. Leaders from the EU and the region were planned to gather in person for the first time since the Sofia Summit held on 17 May 2018. The event was in a way supposed to be a turning point in organising regular meetings between EU leaders and leaders from the region, as it comes at the beginning of the new institutional mandate of the European Commission. It was also intended to confirm the EU’s engagement towards the region and affirm a credible enlargement policy through somewhat altered negotiation methodology. Most importantly, a long-announced comprehensive programme of economic incentives for candidate countries in the accession process was planned to be presented at the event.
