On the 25th April 2018, the National University of Public Service hosted the Ambassadors’ Forum with the topic “Republic of Moldova – Shaping the European Future”.
Our institute was represented by senior analyst János T. Barabás, who in his public lecture described Moldovan-Hungarian relations as excellent, with bilateral trade of over 100 million euros last year. In our colleague’s opinion EU integration is the best means to counter the regional security challenges facing Moldova. H.E. Ambassador Oleg Tulea stated that Moldova recovered after the 2015 banking scandal, and EU integration is an excellent modernization project for his country. General Ferenc Bánfi, former EUBAM mission director related his experiences of security issues in Moldova, focusing on the importance of regional and EU cooperation on border issues.
