The work on that paper had begun before the European Commission started consultations on the Action Plan and had been preceded by the Concept of Integration of the Republic of Moldova into the European Union.
The Concept expresses a political message and confirms the European options of the Republic of Moldova. It sets the guidelines for the achievement of the European integration objective, a process which will involve central and local government as well as civil society institutions. When the document was being worked out, taking into account the developments of that time, the Republic of Moldova considered the South-East European channel as the most adequate, without excluding other possible options which would explicitly lead to the country’s integration into the European Union.
