Republic of Moldova and the benefits of the European Political Community

Republic of Moldova and the benefits of the European Political Community

This issue of the foreign policy bulletin tries to explain the essence of the European Political Community - a project aimed at increasing cohesion in the heart of Europe, proposed by French President Emmanuel Macron - and what it means for the Republic of Moldova. In the interviews with the vice-president of the Romanian Chamber of Deputies, Dan Barna, and with the expert and researcher of the New Europe Centre from Kyiv, Leonid Litra, we discuss about what this new extended format of discussions within the EU entails and what its benefits for Chisinau could be. In the “Expert Opinion” section, Nicoletta Pirozzi tries to answer the question of whether the European Political Community can be the backbone of a new European security architecture. The edition's editorial is signed by the Deutsche Welle journalist, Simion Ciochina. More

The minimum wage in the Republic of Moldova: it’s time for a more determined attitude

The minimum wage in the Republic of Moldova: it’s time for a more determined attitude

The study “The minimum wage in the Republic of Moldova: it’s time for a more determined attitude” aims to open a broader debate on the need to revitalize the minimum wage in the Republic of Moldova and the implications of a more dynamic growth. The study dismantles existing myths about the minimum wage, also in the Republic of Moldova, and highlights the benefits of a sustainable increase in the minimum wage, namely: protection of the most vulnerable employees, stimulating vertical wage growth (given that collective agreements and employment contracts are still working for some sectors), increasing the purchasing power of the population, combating tax evasion on wages (especially "gray" wages - paid partly legally and partly informally), increasing budget revenues, reorienting companies over time to more complex and with higher added value activities.

Republic of Moldova and its chance on the European path: candidate country status for the EU membership

Republic of Moldova and its chance on the European path: candidate country status for the EU membership

After filling in two questionnaires received from the European Commission, the Republic of Moldova is facing the most important test on its European integration path, which is just at the beginning of this process, - receiving the EU candidate country status. With a pro-European reformist power and with an unprecedented openness on the part of the European Union, this could be Moldova’s chance. The European Parliament has given recently a clear signal of support by voting a resolution urging the European Commission to give a positive opinion on the EU candidate country status for Moldova. The current edition of the foreign policy newsletter is presenting interviews with Iulian Groza, director of IPRE, and Nadia Afanasieva, director of the Ukrainian Institute for International Politics in Kyiv, about what it meant to fill in the questionnaires for the European Commission for both countries, as well as an editorial signed by the journalist Madalin Necshutsu, Balkan Insight correspondent in Chisinau, about the European perspective of the Republic of Moldova.
