Estonia has supported Moldova’s development cooperation projects since 2000, and Moldova has been a priority country for Estonian bilateral development cooperation since 2006. Estonia supports Moldova’s entry to the European Union and is ready to offer assistance for the realization of the Association Agreement in Moldova. An Estonian-Moldovan development cooperation strategy has been created reflecting Moldova’s needs and determining directions and areas for development in which Estonia can offer added value.
Estonia also supports Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The priorities of our development cooperation so far are the promoting democratic state governance, including e-governance and local governance, supporting the reform of the healthcare system, and supporting the development of rural areas.
Since 2000, Moldova has been supported by Estonian development cooperation in the amount of 10.4 million euros. During this period, 261 projects have been implemented in Moldova. There are currently 10 ongoing projects in Moldova.
