    The evolution of governance at European and global level in the last half century has outlined a clear trend-government decentralization and strengthening of local autonomy. In the Republic of Moldova, since independence until now, several actions have been taken to reform the public administration. But their controversial nature, lack of continuity and uncertainty of the goals have not allowed evolution to a genuine local autonomy. So far, the effect of laws enacted for redistribution of functions mainly focused on the transfer of tasks and responsibilities, and less on the proper allocation of resources to execute them. Meanwhile, the European perspective encourages public administration reform in the Republic of Moldova. One of its priorities is related to the financial area, which can be achieved by fiscal decentralization. The European Charter of Local Self-Government, ratified by the Moldovan Parliament, points out that a genuine local autonomy is essential to democracy. And true local autonomy is possible only in conditions of independence and financial autonomy
