New partnerships were developed with academia, the private sector, civil society, young people, and development partners around the processes for the United Nations Common Country Analysis, our next strategic cooperation framework, and further European ambitions of the Republic of Moldova. In terms of looking forward, the UNCT and the Government of Moldova finalised and signed the new UN Cooperation Framework for Sustainable Development 2023-2027, and the Parliament adopted the revised “European Moldova 2030” National Development Strategy. Those frameworks offer a strong basis to guide our work over the coming years to support the Government of Moldova on its path to European integration.
