In the opening speeches of the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Ms. Natalia Gherman and Ambassador Dirk Schübel, Head of the European Delegation to Moldova it was strongly highlighted the need for comprehensive reforms in Moldova in compliance with EU standards that will pave the way towards European integration. The valuable support and expertise provided in the framework the Joint Progamme in a number of crucial reforms tackling judicial sector, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Parliament, etc., was highly praised.

The Minister of Justice, Mr. Oleg Efrim reiterated the fact that thanks to the prompt assistance of the Joint Programme, the Ministry of Justice has successfully started up a complex process on the drafting of the Strategy for Justice Sector Reform. In addition, assistance will be provided to the working groups that are currently working on amendments and draft laws for the judicial reform, reform of the prosecutor's service and criminal procedure reform.

All project beneficiaries and partners highly appreciated the cooperation with the CoE and the results of the project under the 5 components for which the DG Human Rights and Legal Affairs was responsible. 
Conclusions/Follow Up For the forthcoming 6 months, 3 key priorities should lead our joint efforts and work – stated Mr. Ulvi Akhundlu, Head of Office of the Council of Europe Office in Chisinau. We need to further focus our attention and energies in the successful finalization of Component 1 that is related to the drafting of the Justice Reform Sector Strategy and relevant draft laws that need to be approved; the refurbishment of the temporary detention facility in Chisinau and bringing its conditions in full compliance with the European prison standards (under Component 3 of the programme) and lastly but not least the completition of Component 7.2 that aims at promoting broad society paricipation and facilitating policy dialogue.
