Visit of Vladimir Filat, Moldovan Prime Minister, to Benita Ferrero-Waldner: round table, extracts from the common press briefing and signature of a financing agreement

9 views

Vladimir Filat, Moldovan Prime Minister, visited Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, on 30 September 2009 in Brussels. A press conference followed the signing ceremony of the financing agreement on "Technical assistance and twinning in support of the implementation of the EU/Moldova Action Plan". The twinning agreement allows the partner country to benefit from the expertise of specialists of "sister administrations" from the EU. In this case, the project aims at supporting and strengthening administrative capabilities in public procurement, competition policy, State aid and intellectual property rights. Two projects are ongoing: the support for the functioning of the Parliament and the penitentiary reform. 2009 has been a troubled year for Moldova. After contested parliamentary elections results in April 2009, opposition protest in Chişinău turned into riots, leading to the killing of three young people. After dissolution of the Parliament, shortly followed by the resignation of Vladimir Voronin, President of Moldova, the freshly elected Parliament had two months to elect a new President, which choice was Mihai Ghimpu, acting President of Moldova.
