The Association for Participatory Democracy ADEPT released at a roundtable on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 the book "Governance priorities – 2009", which provides an analysis of the state of things in several areas of major importance for the Republic of Moldova: human rights, rule of law, agriculture, regional development, investment climate, foreign trade, social protection system, etc. The researches included in this collection provide a retrospective analysis of the evolution in these areas in 2001–2008, indicate existing problems and offer solutions. The speaker of the Parliament of Moldova, Mr. Mihai Ghimpu, welcomed the participants at the opening of the roundtable and encouraged the further development of a dialogue between authorities and civil society. The first deputy chairman of the Parliament, Mr. Serafim Urechean, stressed the necessity of coordinating decisions of the country leadership with experts from associative sector, and this research collection will be a guideline for the next Government.
Taking part in the event were leaders of political parties, members of parliament, independent experts, NGO representatives and journalists who discussed the conclusions and recommendations proposed by research developers. Participants in the roundtable agreed that this publication may be a source to work out the new governing programme of the country.
The purpose of the publication "Governance priorities 2009" is to provide political parties, especially members of the new legislature and new authorities, as well as the public with guidelines for approaching emergent problems faced by the Republic of Moldova at present. As well, the book is an ample information source for those interested, including experts and journalists, which is necessary to monitor the activity of the new legislature and executive.
The collection was published within the project "Stronger cooperation of political parties, electoral bodies and voters" implemented by ADEPT with the financial support of the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).
