Nearly thirty years after gaining independence from the Soviet Union, the Republic of Moldova is at a critical crossroads. Eager to forge closer ties with the West, the government has made concerted efforts to bring the country closer in line with Western standards. Progress has been made over the past few years: Moldova has increased economic growth, reformed parts of the banking sector, and replaced Russia with the EU as its main trading partner. However, the country continues to face challenges in key areas, particularly in its democratic processes, justice system, and independence of media.
At this event, the Atlantic Council will launch a new report on Moldova’s reform strategy and will bring together a panel of experts to discuss the country’s path forward.
