European Parliament backs EU-Moldova association deal
The European Parliament gave its consent to the EU-Moldova Association agreement, which includes a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA), on Thursday in Brussels. The deal will form the backbone of strengthened political association and economic integration between the EU and Moldova and provide for mutual free market access.
“The ratification of the EU-Moldova Association Agreement is a clear acknowledgment of the success of Moldova’s political and economic reform process, which establishes its European prospects and bears witness to its determination eventually to join the EU”, said rapporteur Petras Auštrevičius (ALDE, LT). “It is time to congratulate Moldova’s people on this historic achievement, especially in the context of the upcoming parliamentary elections on 30 November, which will be crucial for the country”, he added.
