Managing rural finance for growth and poverty alleviation in Moldova - towards an efficient European integration


  • Alexandru STRATAN

    () (State Agrarian University of Moldova, Republic of Moldova)


At present, though, Moldova’s leadership puts the question more actively – it declares that European integration is an external policy priority of the country. The Government has finally prepared the Concept for European Integration, which emphasizes that “on the internal level the actions of the Republic of Moldova will be mostly oriented towards meeting the Copenhagen criteria”. And further on: “a progressive economic development of the Republic of Moldova represents the basis for the improvement of economic environment and consolidation of the relations with the EU. Promotion of structural economic reforms is a way to modernize the Republic of Moldova, to lessen and gradually eliminate gaps between developed European states and to create a functional and transparent market economy compatible with the EU principles, norms, mechanisms, institutions and policies”.
