Regular informal meetings to ensure open communication with authorities and identify priorities for joint collaboration.
FIA members met on 4th of July 2023 Veronica Mihailov-Moraru, Minister of Justice, for a business breakfast.
The main subject tackled during the meeting was the Justice Reform implementation stage. It was emphasized that despite the fact that there is a legal and institutional framework, the Republic of Moldova continues to be affected by significant deficiencies at the level of corruption and governance. Poor law enforcement has a negative impact on foreign direct investments and private sector development. It is obvious that the authorities are not in a position to independently, without the support of external development partners, identify and exclude corrupt officials from the entire justice system.
Thus, the participants at the meeting expressed their support for the Pre-vetting and Vetting Commissions, that started to show significant results in the “cleaning” process of the judicial system. For the complete rehabilitation of the justice system, in order to exclude corruption and ensure the basic right of the citizens of the Republic of Moldova to an objective investigation and a fair justice, the members of the Foreign Investors Association come with a series of proposals and measures in this regard, available at the following link: https://fia.md/position-papers/white-book/…
