Relations with EU

In 1983, the Republic of San Marino, as a third State, established official relations with the European Union. Since then, the relations have strengthened, making it possible to considerably reduce distances and to introduce important opportunities for dialogue and discussion.

 

This section of the website contains necessary information to describe the structure of the cooperation with the European Union and it also provides some points for discussion and analysis relating to the process undertaken by San Marino for greater European integration, from the start of negotiations for an Association Agreement to the steps taken in areas related to territorial cooperation.

 

The different sections allow to learn more about the history of relations with the European Union and the roots of the European tradition of San Marino, to have access to institutionally important documents, to follow the initiatives undertaken by the country to strengthen relations with the Union and learn more about this topic through publications and studies by the Directorate of European Affairs.
