From January 2007 onwards, the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) replaces a series of European Union programmes and financial instruments for candidate countries or potential candidate countries. However, implementation and control of Funds still creates a lot of challenges for the authorities in charge of their financial management, audit and control. At the same time, candidate and potential candidate countries have to get ready for new programming period 2021- 2027 (IPA III). What does this mean for the future? What challenges will it bring?
