In February 2018, the European Commission adopted a strategy for 'A credible enlargement perspective for and enhanced EU engagement with the Western Balkans', confirming the European future of the region. It spells out the priorities and areas of joint reinforced cooperation, addressing the specific challenges the Western Balkans face, in particular the need for fundamental reforms and good neighbourly relations. The Commission also announced six flagship initiatives to support the transformational efforts of the region in areas of mutual interest. Increased connectivity within the Western Balkans and between the region and the EU is one of the areas that will feature high on the agenda of the Western Balkans Summit in Sofia on 17 May 2018. On this occasion, the Audiovisual Service of the European Commission has produced a series of new video stockshots with illustrative images of the capitals and countryside of the Western Balkans: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia.
