CRPE Event: The Visit of the National Integrity Commission of the Republic of Moldova to the National Integrity Agency

On the 21st and 22nd of January 2013, the Romanian Center for European Policies together with the Foreign Policy Association in the Republic of Moldova have organized  a study visit of the representatives of the National Integrity Commission in the Republic of Moldova at the headquarters of the National Integrity Agency in Romania.

The study visit was organized within the project “Contributions to the partnership for development between Romania and the Republic of Moldova” and its aim was to ensure a transfer of experience and best practices to the representatives of a young institution, the National Integrity Commission, from an institution that has become a model in the fight against corruption in Romania. In order to achieve its European aspirations, the Republic of Moldova should create strong institutions to combat conflicts of interest and incompatibilities, and the exchange of experience with an experienced organization, which has been appreciated in the reports of the European Commission is an important step in this direction.

The event was attended by the President of the National Integrity Agency (Horia Georgescu), the Vice President (Bogdan Stan), the chiefs of the Agency’s main departments (IT and HR) and representatives of the Integrity Inspection. The Moldovan delegation was composed by the President of the National Integrity Commission (Anatolie Donciu), members of the Commission (Veronica Lupu and Leonid Morari) and representatives of the Legal Services and Human Resources Management and the Control Directorate on Income and Properties.

The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Development Assistance Unit of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
