Strategic alliances between the European Union and third nations foster international collaboration in a variety of sectors, including the economic, security, and the environment.
Special Partnership Agreements are mutually beneficial agreements that allow governments to collaborate to accomplish common goals and aspirations.
Because the nature of each bilateral alliance varies by country, it is impossible to provide a precise definition. Rather, various strategic partnership projects can be investigated to determine the nature of the agreement with a specific third country.
EU Strategic Partnerships (SPs) are constantly evolving to address contemporary concerns. For example, on July 15th, 2020, the EU and India had a conference to explore the building of the EU-India strategic cooperation based on common concerns about COVID-19, climate change, and digitalization.
This article examines the essential areas for collaboration between the EU and its primary strategic partners, as well as the goals of such bilateral agreements. It also looks ahead to prospective EU partnership and cooperation agreements in the coming years.
