End of Year Interview with Ms. Melanie Marlett, World Bank Country Manager for Moldova. Interlic. 05.02.2010. 05.02.2010
Actually, the entire period has been one continuous highlight for me. I arrived in Moldova during the summer of 2007 when Moldova was facing one of the worst droughts in history. That summer was a very challenging one for the entire country. The Bank responded with support for irrigation through the Rural Investment Support project. In 2008, we had the floods and soaring global food prices. The Bank, working with UNICEF, responded with food supplements for mothers and children in need as well as with cash transfers to social institutions. And, of course, 2009 was a year when Moldova was hit hard by the global economic crisis while also going through an extended political transition. The World Bank has responded swiftly with financial support and expertise to address the effects of the crisis.

Interview with Victor Chirila: “Development of foreign relations will depend on internal situation.” Info-Prim Neo. 06.01.2010. 06.01.2010
The general conclusion is that it was a difficult year. First of all, because the internal events, in particular the election campaign, were negatively affected by our foreign policy, especially in the first half of 2009. Owing to the political instability, Moldova’s relations with the EU were close to becoming frozen. For example, the European officials permanently postponed the talks on the Association Agreement with the EU, until the clarification of the situation.
