This paper argues that the ENP has helped the consolidation of EU-Egypt partnership at economic and trade level, but failed to be a really transformative policy and bring Egypt's political and economic systems more closely into line with those of the EU. For all its shortcomings, however, if we consider the poor current state of the Euro-Mediterranean relations and its future perspectives, we conclude that the ENP is likely to remain the main framework for relations between the EU and Egypt in coming years.
