The TACIS programme is a European Union initiative set up to help the new independent states achieve a transition from centrally planned to market economies. One of the main aims in implementing the TACIS programme is to establish partnerships and cooperation between organisations in its partner countries and their counterparts in the European Union. The European Union and its partner countries work closely to assess reform objectives and the needs for TACIS support based on the economic situation and progress of reform. This joint assessment produces an indicative programme for each country which establishes the priority sectors for TACIS funding. Indicative Programmes cover a three year period. TACIS then determines, in coordination with the partner countries, how best to use the methods and means of TACIS to address the priorities. Specific actions in the priority sectors are incorporated in annual Action Programmes.
