Since coming to power in 2009, Moldova’s ruling Alliance for European Integration (AEI) embarked on an ambitious program of domestic reforms to move the country closer to European Union accession. After eight years of Communist rule, the AEI inherited weak state institutions and an overregulated, monopolized economy.  The AEI has initiated reforms to improve the functions of the public administration and enhance the business environment and competition, but many hurdles remain as opposition to change is still strong. Dr. Veaceslav Ionita, Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for Economy, Budget, and Finance, who is on official visit to Washington DC, will talk about governance challenges in advancing reforms in the public and private sectors.     

Dr. Ionita has been a Member of Parliament since 2009 and is currently Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for Economy, Budget, and Finance. Before he was elected to Parliament, Dr. Ionita was a Senior Economist at the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDSI) ‘Viitorul’, a leading think tank in Moldova. IDSI has been a CIPE partner since 2006, working with a network of business associations and chambers of commerce from across Moldova to engage in a public-private dialogue and promote pro-business reforms. Dr. Ionita is also an Associate Professor for Public Policy and Administration at the Academy of Economic Studies in Moldova.

Andrew Wilson, CIPE Regional Director for Eurasia and South Asia, will moderate the discussion.
