The Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA 2006) is a modern and comprehensive regional free trade agreement, designed as an integral part of the pre-accession agenda. It provides a strong legal basis for policy formulation and implementation in key areas related to trade and investment. The successful implementation of the Agreement to date with full liberalisation of trade in goods has substantially contributed to the creation of a free trade area in South East Europe.  The CEFTA Parties have agreed on an ambitious agenda to further contribute to economic growth.
