The duration of the EU-funded project “Support to the implementation of the European Union High Level Advisers” Mission’ has been extended for one more year – until 1 January 2023.

The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova approved the extension the project implemented by a consortium led by ‘Business & Strategies in Europe’, thus bringing its total duration to 4 years – since 2 January 2019 until 1 January 2023.

The project provides important support to the Government of the Republic of Moldova in implementing its reform Agenda and it assists the Moldovan authorities in developing the capacities required for the implementation of the Association Agreement (AA), including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), at the same time ensuring the necessary follow-up for the post – visa liberalisation stage.

Currently, the project deploys 10 High Level Advisers – experienced professionals from the EU Member States – with strong background on their specific sectors: Anticorruption; Anti- Money Laundering and Asset Recovery; Confidence Building Measures; Customs and Tax Policy (Domestic Revenue Mobilisation); Education and Research; Energy; Financial Services; Green Transition; Justice and Prosecution; Local Public Administration Reform, including Decentralisation and Voluntary Amalgamation.

It also provides short term expertise in a wide range of sector, where assistance is needed to progress on specific Government actions or reforms.
