The European Commission will provide Moldova with a €9 million grant support to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and implement the Association Agreement’s reforms, according to a press release on the Parliament’s website.

On September 9, the briefing notes the Committee on Foreign Policy and European Integration approved on negotiating and signing the Financing Agreement between the Moldovan Government and the European Commission, within the EU4Moldova project: the health system response to the COVID emergency and the implementation of reforms according to the Association Agreement.

The agreement has four components: health, the financial sector, the rule of law, and the media.

The European Commission allocates €5 million to strengthen the public health system’s capacity to respond effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as purchases of equipment for health centers and laboratories and critical assistance in case management, as well as for improving laboratories’ capacities in the prevention and control of infections.

€2 million will strengthen supervisory capacity, corporate governance, and risk management in the financial sector.  

The grant provides €1 million to support the rule of law, justice, and security, strengthening local media independence and capacity in producing informative and factual content.

The agreement is part of the European Union’s 2020 Annual Action Program for Moldova, funded under the European Neighborhood Instrument.
