EU Commission to send budget support to Moldova
The European Commission on Tuesday resumed budget support assistance to Moldova, disbursing €14.54 million ($16.2 million) to the Eastern European country.
TO ACCOMPANY THE COUNTRY ON ITS REFORM PATH
"Today's package is a clear sign of the EU support to the Republic of Moldova and its citizens," Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn said in a statement.
Hahn added the EU is strongly committed to supporting and accompanying Moldova on its reform path.
The amount has budget support disbursements under three programs: Support for implementation of a free trade agreement between Moldova and the EU, vocational education training, and a visa liberalization action plan.
Before now, for nearly two years, such EU payments had been on hold due to deterioration of the rule of law in the country.
