Sigfried Mureșan: European Commission submitted proposal on Moldova’s gradual integration into European Single Market

Moldovan products will enjoy facilitated access to the EU market. The European Commission submitted to the European Parliament MEP Siegfried Mureșan’s proposal on Moldova’s gradual integration into the European Single Market. According to the European official, the access to the European Single Market will provide concrete benefits to Moldova’s citizens, before the country becomes a member of the European community, IPN reports.

According to Romanian MEP Siegfried Mureșan, the European Commission presented its proposal for the gradual integration of Moldova and the other candidate states into the European Single Market, in parallel with the process of joining the European Union.

“The proposal is part of the European Commission’s communication on reforms needed ahead of the enlargement of the European Union. It is a very good proposal that I, as chair of the European Parliament’s Delegation for relations with the Republic of Moldova, presented two years ago, before the granting of the candidate status to the Republic of Moldova,” Siegfried Mureșan said in a press release.

According to the MEP, the access to the Single Market means full and permanent liberalization of the EU-Moldova trade. It means that Moldovan products will enter the European market more easily. Also, through access to the Single Market, the people in Moldova will have easier access to high-quality European products at lower prices.

“The gradual integration of the Republic of Moldova into the Single Market and other European programs brings concrete benefits to people faster, even before the actual accession to the European Union. Last but not least, the gradual integration into the Single Market will bring European quality standards to Moldova and will offer greater confidence to investors to come to Moldova and create new jobs. The proposal put forward today by the European Commission will have the full support of the European Parliament to become a reality and for its benefits to be felt as soon as possible by the people of the Republic of Moldova,” explained Siegfried Mureșan.

In 2014, the Republic of Moldova signed with the European Union the Free Trade Agreement, which involves the gradual liberalization of trade in goods and services, reduction of customs duties, technical and non-tariff barriers, abolition of quantitative restrictions and harmonization of the Moldovan legislation with the European legislation.
