An European Union representative announced on Monday that the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) has achieved a progress in building up the future independent Palestinian state.

Christian Burger, the EU envoy to the Middle East told a joint news conference with Palestinian Foreign Minister Reyad al-Malki that the PNA achieves a lot in line with the two-year plan of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to build up the Palestinian state.

"Economy in the Palestinian territories has grew 9.3 percent in the year 2010," said Burger, adding that the Palestinian Authority 's financial performance is similar to the year 2010."

He also said that "there has been a progress in the reforms and development which was reflected on the work plan as well, particularly in the area of improving financial accountability and proper management of public finance."

Meanwhile, al-Malki said the PNA is currently working on preparing a new joint plan "that considers the historic ties between Palestinians and the European Union and reflects the political relationships."
