(12 September 2019) – Following the change of government in June 2019, the Republic of Moldova has moved resolutely with the implementation of key reforms to address the deterioration of democratic standards and the rule of law.

This stems from the Association Implementation Report the EU published today – in the context of the revised European Neighbourhood Policy – on the implementation of the commitments under the EU-Moldova Association Agreement over the past year.

The report will feed into the annual EU-Moldova Association Council, taking place in Brussels on 30 September 2019.
