"Deepening the Partnership between the European Union and the Republic of Moldova"

High-level conference with EU and national policy makers.



Stability in the European Neighborhood has become an increasingly important topic. The EU recently confirmed its readiness to start negotiations on a new agreement with the Republic of Moldova going beyond the current Partnership and Cooperation Agreement. At the same time the European Commission is working on proposals to develop the Eastern Partnership which is supposed to deepen the bilateral as well as multilateral cooperation with and among the Eastern European neighbors.
