Backing the economic recovery through attracting funds for strengthening the macro-economic stability and supporting small- and medium-sized enterprises and attracting investments;
Combating corruption and promoting the rule of law state through cooperation with international partners for the recovery of the assets from abroad of the corrupt civil servants, officials and business people;
Supporting the regional security and an environment without conflicts through maintaining good-neighbour relations with Romania, Ukraine and other states with security interests in the region, as well as through the consolidation of the security and defence institutions; and
Assuming an active role globally – a long-term commitment, which regards a more active involvement of Moldova in identifying solutions to regional and global problems of environment, security and development.
„We have now more openness on behalf of our foreign partners, but we must work hard, in order to turn it to good account and put it in the service of the people. We cannot miss this occasion,’’ President Maia Sandu said while presenting the document.
It is worth mentioning that, under the Constitution, Moldova’s President represents the state in the relations with other countries at the highest level and fulfills his/her powers in the field of foreign policy in cooperation with the parliament and government.
