Next wave of enlargement [Archived]

The EU will continue enlarging after the current wave, which will add 10 Member States on 1 May 2004. Bulgaria and Romania could join the EU in 2007 if they fulfil all the membership criteria. Turkey's candidature will be reviewed at the end of 2004, and Ankara will be able to start accession negotiations with the EU if it fulfils the Copenhagen political criteria. Croatia formally applied for for membership in the EU on 20 February 2003, and the Council asked the Commission on 14 April 2003 to submit its opinion on this application. In its second annual Stabilisation and Association Process report, released on 26 March 2003, the Commission said that the enlargement process would extend to Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia and Serbia-Montenegro after the planned accession of Bulgaria and Romania in 2007.
