Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the website of the European Parliament's Delegation to the EU-Moldova Parliamentary Association Committee. This website is meant to give you a better grasp of EU-Moldova parliamentary relations.

As the elected chair of the Delegation, I preside over our regular meetings in Brussels and Strasbourg and co-chair the biannual meetings of the joint body we have with the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova (a "Parliamentary Association Committee"), which was established in 2015.

Our main objective, as a European Parliament Delegation, is to help improving the quality of the EU's relationship with Moldova, with material advances in the standards of Moldovan citizens. We also aim to help develop a corruption-free democracy in Moldova, based on the rule of law and on equality for all citizens.

We do this through different tools and channels, but principally by supporting the reform process in the Republic of Moldova, including through the implementation of the ambitious EU-Moldova Association Agreement, which came into force on 1 July 2016.

Implementing this agreement requires a lot of hard work, and notably the adoption of a significant number of laws. I am convinced that we, as Members of the European Parliament, have much experience and good practices to share with our Moldovan counterparts.

We also strive to reach out to a wide variety of interlocutors in the Republic of Moldova - and especially to civil society actors, students and media representatives - and to contribute to shaping EU policy towards Moldova, together with the other interested bodies in the European Parliament.

I hope that you will find in this site the information you are looking for. If not, feel free to write us at:
