Moldovan State Chancellery to implement phase two of migration, development project
On 10 July 2018 the government of Moldova approved the signing of Amendment I to the Memorandum of Understanding between the State Chancellery (CS) of Moldova and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SADC) on Program "Realizing the Migration Potential in the Republic of Moldova".
According to the government’s communication and protocol department, the negotiations between the parties, Phase II of project "Strengthening the Institutional Framework of the Republic of Moldova in the Field of Migration and Development" (MIDIDOM) within the program "Realizing the Migration Potential in the Republic of Moldova" will be fully managed by the CS.
It is for the first time, that in the field of Diaspora, migration and development, the donor institution transfers the project management, including financially, directly to the beneficiary institution – the CS, becoming a unit of implementation.
The MIDIDOM project is carried out by the Diaspora Office (BRD) within the State Chancellery, which capacities were consolidated in the project’s first phase, allowing the CS throughout BRD to manage and implement the second phase of the MIDIDOM project itself. The project implementation will contribute to the realization of the national strategy "Diaspora-2025", consolidating the positive impact of the migration phenomenon on the socio-economic development of Moldova by strengthening the national and local institutional framework. It will also contribute to the involvement of Moldovan migrants in development of localities through the transfer of knowledge acquired abroad, as well as the creation of services for migrants and their families.
