The European Commission has been actively involved in supporting the development of a successful socio-economic environment in Moldova.
At the end of November 2013, Republic of Moldova committed to develop efficient and sustainable statistical systems capable of providing reliable, objective and accurate data needed to plan and monitor the process of development and reforms in the country. This also includes regional development as one of the key policy areas in the cooperation with the EU.
Within this context the European Commission has launched a new assistance project for Moldova called “Improved Regional Statistics in the Republic of Moldova”.
The main objective of the EU Project “Improved Regional Statistics in the Republic of Moldova” is to support Moldova in advancing its economic, social and territorial cohesion with focus on the development of the policy, legal and institutional framework for an effective development policy for Moldova’s regions by:
- Improving regional statistics so they are reliable, objective and accurate and therefore consistent with Eurostat standards;
- Validating the capacity among relevant bodies to continuously produce, disseminate and efficiently use regional statistics;
- Improving the system and sources for the production of regional accounts.
