The Republic of Moldova didn’t do its homework in the relationship with the European Union. At least this is the impression given by Prime Minister Pavel Filip’s visit to Brussels, where this reported on the fulfillment of the conditions set by the EU for providing macro-financial assistance. The issue was developed in the talk show “Black box” on TV8 channel, IPN reports.
Transparency International expert Veaceslav Negruta said the Moldovan delegation was transmitted a harsh message in Brussels – the reform agenda should be implemented and the reforms cannot be simulated as they must produce results. All the ten points of the reform agenda are open to question. The general impression is that the homework wasn’t done and is to be done during a particular period of time. But to get the first installment of the macro-financial assistance, Moldova must implement all the ten conditions imposed by the EU.
Dumitru Alaiba, expert of the Center for Politics and Reforms, said Brussels transmitted a very good message to the people and a discouraging message to the government. The Moldovan citizens should understand that things in Moldova are not governed transparently.
Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn, after the meeting of the Moldova – EU Association Council held in Brussels on May 3, said Moldova is to fulfill two more conditions to be able to receive the first installment of the macro-financial assistance provided by the EU – to ensure the functionality of the National Integrity Authority and to adopt an additional budget for the anticorruption institutions to be able to work.
