For the period 2014-2020, the European Union finances the Joint Operational Programme Romania-Republic of Moldova, through the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).
The program addresses the border area between Romania and Republic of Moldova, and will contribute to the overall objective of the European Neighbourhood Instrument: evolution towards a region of prosperity and good neighborliness, achieved through Cross Border Cooperation actions to the benefit of neighboring EU Member and Non-member States.
The program area consists of:
Romania: counties: Botoșani, Iași, Vaslui, Galați
Republic of Moldova – the whole country
The organizations from Transnistria are eligible if these are registered in Republic of Moldova.
EU financial allocation to this program is EUR 81 million.
The minimum co-financing to be ensured by the two countries is 10% of the EU contribution.
The programme has been prepared by the Joint Programme Committee with consultation of stakeholders from the programme area. The programme was approved by the European Commission in December 2015.
