Luxembourg Ambassador welcomed trainees from different Turkish institutions at his Residence

Published Thursday October 10 2019

On 8 October, the Ambassador of Luxembourg, Mr. Georges Faber, hosted a reception at his Residence for the participants in a training activity funded by the Luxembourg MFA and implemented by the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA). Mrs. Nilgün Erdem Arı, Director General for Southern and Western Europe at the Directorate for EU Affairs of the Turkish MFA, Luxembourg’s partner in this program, honoured the participants by her presence.

This bilateral program is a perfect illustration of the successful cooperation between Luxembourg and Turkey when it comes to supporting Turkey’s ambitions in its accession process to the European Union. EIPA is delivering specialized training activities on EU law and legal affairs with the objective to strengthen the capacities of the Turkish public administration and judiciary in implementing the EU Acquis. Approximatively 50 activities have taken place in Turkey and in Luxembourg since the inception of the program in 2007.
