The 7th regular Anticorruption Donors’ Network meeting took place on 23 June, organised with the support of the EU HLA Mission. During the meeting, representatives of the donor community presented the planned and ongoing activities and projects in the field of anticorruption and exchanged opinions on the key ongoing reforms in the field of anticorruption.

In light of Moldova’s commitment to fulfil the nine recommendations of the European Commission in the context of Moldova’s EU membership application and importance of concerted initiatives aimed at strengthening institutional capacity of national anti-corruption agencies and improving further the quality of investigations and efficiency of the prosecution leading to convictions, it was agreed to approve joint talking points to call on the international donors’ community as well as the key national beneficiary institutions to focus on the main priority areas for action, like consensus on the future anticorruption institutional framework, international cooperation, integrity in public and private sectors, inter-institutional cooperation, cooperation with civil society and grassroot organizations etc.

The Anticorruption Donors’ Network is an informal network of development partners, implementing projects and activities in the anticorruption sector. It was established at the initiative of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova in September 2022. The network aims at providing a communication platform for all the donors active in the field of anticorruption for regular interaction, identification of synergies and coordination of efforts, to avoid overlapping.
