Monitoring the implementation of the public administration reform and resource distribution
The Republic of Moldova follows the correct path in the implementation of reforms. The authorities must lay emphasis on reforms in corruption fighting, ensuring of transparency in the financial-banking sector and improvement of the situation in the business sector, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrei Galbur and Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders said in a news conference after a meeting held in Chisinau on June 1, IPN reports.
Andrei Galbur stated that they discussed the implementation of reforms in accordance with the priority reform action roadmap. “I informed that this document was 57% carried out. We discussed all the commitments deriving from the Association Agreement with the EU and underlined the necessity of developing economic cooperation, the Netherlands being one of our main trading partners. But we are yet far from the moment when we can say that we took all the opportunities provided by the Association Agreement,” he said.
Andrei Galbur voiced hope that this first visit to Moldova by Minister Bert Koenders will give the stimulus needed for the relations between the two states to continue to be good and to even develop.
Bert Koenders said the efforts made by the Moldovan authorities to do reforms are aimed at the right direction. The provisions of the Moldova – EU Association Agreement must be implemented because this accord brings more benefits to Moldova. The Embassy of the Netherlands in Chisinau will be opened in several months. Now the Netherlands has an ambassador for Romania and Moldova based in Bucharest.
The Netherlands ranks 21st among the top 30 partner states of Moldova by exports. According to the State Registration Chamber, 160 companies with Dutch capital were registered in Moldova at the end of 2015. The Netherlands tops the rankings of countries that invested in the share capital in Moldova.
