CHISINAU, January 10 (Itar-Tass) — The European Union will grant 12 million euros to Moldova for the implementation of the confidence building measures between Chisinau and Tiraspol. The related agreement was signed between Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat and Head of the EU Border Assistance Mission to Moldova, Ambassador Dirk Schuebel on Tuesday.
The total budget of the program is estimated at 13 million euros.
“First of all, this is a political aid. The project embraces the population living in the Dniester conflict security zone. The funds will be spent for the assistance to the young and the development of the civil society, as well as for the steps for the republic’s reintegration,” the prime minister explained.
Last week, Moldova and the European Union signed four more agreements on funding total worth of 68 million euros, which will be spent for the promotion of infrastructural projects.
The documents were signed after Brussels’ decision to start a free trade talks with Moldova.
In Filat’s words, the republic achieved substantial progress in the process of reforms and fulfilled the package of conditions necessary for the step-by-step entry to the EU internal market.
In addition, Filat plans to visit Brussels, where official talks on the signing of a free trade agreement are expected to start.
