For example, Armenia, which has not signed such an agreement with the EU, receives from the EU half as much financial resources per capita for the development of local projects as Moldova. During the last 15 years Moldova has received from the EU 1 billion Euros in the form of grant aid.

The participants of our second regional dialogue with citizens, held within the “EU in Moldova: Perceptions and Realities” programme, were able to share their opinions on Moldova’s relations with the European Union and to find out how they can access the European funds.

How to get access to European funds? How does the European Union affect the observance of human rights and ethnic communities in Moldova? These and other questions were discussed with the citizens of Basarabeasca during our first regional dialogue, which took place in the framework of the program “EU in Moldova: Perceptions and Reality”.
