The EU's increasingly close relationship with the Republic of Moldova goes beyond cooperation, encompassing gradual economic integration and deeper political cooperation.

The 2 parties signed an Association Agreement pdf - 6 MB [6 MB] français (fr) , including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), in the margins of the EU summit held on 27 June 2014. Moldova promptly ratified the Agreement on 2 July, and both sides have completed the necessary formalities. Some provisions - including most of the DCFTA section - will therefore apply provisionally from 1 September 2014.

The agreements on visa facilitation and readmission between the EU and Moldova took effect in January 2008, and a wider Mobility Partnershipwas signed in June 2008. Since 28 April 2014, Moldovan citizens have been able to travel to the EU without a visa.

Moldova has been a signatory of the Energy Community Treatyand a full member of the Energy Communitysince 2010.
