Moldova has recorded good results at all levels, but it still has drawbacks in the fight against corruption, the head of the EU Delegation to Chisinau, Ambassador Dirk Schuebel, said today while presenting Moldova's progress report for 2011.

Dirk Schuebel said that 43 out of 45 chapters of legislation had been implemented. "There are two gaps in legislation to pass to the second stage of implementation of the talks on a visa free regime. The first law is on the fight against corruption and economic crimes, and the second one has already become famous - the law on anti-discrimination. We would like to see gradual improvement in this field, the more so as the newly-elected president comes from the justice sector," he said.

Noting that the progress report is favourable to Moldova, Dirk Schuebel pointed up the main recommendations of the European Commission for Moldova, among which to implement the anti-corruption strategy, to carry out the justice reform, to settle the case of the 7 April 2009 riots, to reform the public administration, to speed up the privatization of state companies dealing with telecommunications, transport and energy, to continue the dialogue with Tiraspol, and to complete the implementation of the action plan on a visa free regime.

Schuebel also said that Moldova will benefit from a large part of the financial support worth 130 million euros meant for Eastern Europe in 2011-2013. "The EU will soon decide on a concrete sum that will be offered to Moldova. Taking into account the progress in the European integration, I think that Moldova will get a big part of these proceeds," he said.
