On December 19, 2006 in Bucharest under the Chairmanship of Romania, the Central European Free Trade Agreement was substantially amended and its membership enlarged to create CEFTA 2006 –  a modern and ambitious free trade agreement with six new Parties from South Eastern Europe.

Following the necessary ratification processes, this new CEFTA entered into force across the various Parties between July and November 2007. The speed with which they ratified the agreement illustrates the Parties’ belief in the importance of CEFTA for stimulating economic development and the EU accession agenda in the region.

The signatories to CEFTA 2006 are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) on behalf of Kosovo in accordance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244,

As foreseen in the Agreement, Bulgaria and Romania withdrew from CEFTA upon their accession to the EU in 2007 and Croatia withdrew following its accession to the EU in July 2013.

Each CEFTA Party has appointed official Contact Points to coordinate communications on behalf of their respective Party with the various stakeholders.  They also provide official data and information to the Secretariat.

*This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo* declaration of independence.

I. Introduction
When you visit our website, information relating to the pages you look at may be saved in files called “cookies”, which are stored on the device that is used to access the site. This page explains what cookies are, what they are used for and how you can adjust your settings to manage cookies.

II. What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files that that may – depending on your settings – be stored on the hard drive of your device (be it a computer, a tablet, a mobile phone or any other device that can access the internet) when you visit a website or click on an advertisement. Cookies are managed by your internet browser, and only the issuer of a cookie can read or amend the information contained in it. Cookies are used to identify the device on which they are saved and are operational for a limited period of time.

III. What are the cookies issued by our site used for?
There are three different types of cookie that may be saved on your device while browsing our site. The intended purpose of each of these types of cookie is described below.

1. Technical cookies
Technical cookies are necessary to browse our site and access the various products and services that are available. They are used to:
• optimise the presentation of the website in line with your device’s display preferences (language used, screen resolution, operating system, etc.);
• allow you to access personal areas (such as your user account or content that is reserved for you) on the basis of the information that you provided when creating your account;
• remember some information relating to forms that you have filled in on our website;
• compile statistics measuring visits to and use of our site;
• implement certain security measures.

These cookies must not be deactivated. If they are, you will have problems accessing the site and its services.

2. Audience-measuring cookies
Audience-measuring cookies are issued by us and/or our technical service providers in order to measure the number of people accessing our various types of content. These cookies are also used to identify any potential navigation problems and thus improve the website’s usability. These cookies produce only anonymised statistics and do not provide information on individual visitors.

3. Social media and partners cookies
Social media and partners cookies allow you to share our site’s content with other people or tell people what you think about content on the site. A number of sharing buttons are integrated into our site using third-party applications that could issue this type of cookie. This is true, for example, of Facebook’s “like” and “share” buttons, as well as the “Twitter”, “Google+”, “YouTube” and “Instagram” buttons. The social network providing the button in question may be able to use that button application to identify you, even if you do not click on the relevant button while visiting our site. Indeed, that type of button application may allow the relevant social network to see your browsing activity on our site if your account with that social network is active on your device (i.e. an open session) while you are browsing our site. We suggest that you consult the privacy policies of those social networks to see what browsing information acquired via such button applications is ultimately used for (as regards advertising, for example). Those privacy policies should allow you to indicate your wishes to the relevant social network in respect of cookies, notably by adjusting the settings on your user account.

Please note, however, that changing your settings in this way may affect your access to content and services on our site that require the use of cookies. We suggest, therefore, that you adjust the settings on your browser on the basis of the intended purpose of the various cookies. We will not accept any responsibility for any consequences relating to improper functioning of our services where it results from our inability to save or consult cookies necessary for the functioning of those services and you have blocked or deleted those cookies. If you consent to the saving of cookies contained in content that you have accessed, those cookies will be stored temporarily in a dedicated location on your device. Only the issuer of those cookies will be able to read them. Please note that you can also adjust the settings on your browser such that it indicates the cookies that are being stored on your device and asks you whether you want to accept them.
