The author tries to point out the main evolutions and dynamics of things in Republic of Moldova, namely for a period of more than 10 years, since it is a member of the Eastern Partnership (EaP). Thus, it makes a retrospective incursion on the main dimensions in the relationship of the Republic of Moldova with the EU, in particular the essential elements are emphasized vis-à-vis the EU-Moldova Association Agreement (AA), Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) and the Visa Liberalisation regime with the EU.
Moreover, Iurie Gotișan also tries a regional comparison, especially between the member states of the EaP, from an interdisciplinary analytical perspective offered by some subjects of the civil society of the Republic of Moldova. At the same time, it tends to focus on the achievements and intentions of the government, the expectations and the predictions of the business environment and the civil society. Main objective of this article is a focus on the elements of the classic 3BP standard formula of the integration processes, i.e. process, products and personnel, which are also stipulated in the agreements of Moldova with EU.
