The first and inaugural meeting of the EU-Moldova Civil Society Platform (CSP) was held on 10 May 2016 at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). The CSP complements the political bodies existing within the framework of the EU-Moldova Association Agreement, and it allows civil society organisations from both sides to monitor the implementation process and prepare recommendations to the relevant authorities both in the Republic of Moldova as well as in the European Union.

The CSP is made up of nine members from both Parties, representing the EESC and large European civil society networks, on the one side, and civil society organisations from Moldova, on the other side. ‘Civil Society. Dialogue for Progress’ supported the trip of nine civil society representatives from Moldova to Brussels.

Members of the CSP discussed the state of play in the implementation of the EU-Moldova Association Agreement, held a debate and adopted common viewpoints on the rule of law and good governance.
