Over the last year, September 2009 – October 2010, the new Government that took office on September 25, 2009 faced many challenges that have threatened the socio-economic growth and development of the country. First of all, the Government got the difficult task of overcoming the financial and economic crisis that started in late 2008, which, in the absence of consistent anti-crisis measures, recorded a negative trend of economic growth, increased budget austerity and, thus, population vulnerability. On the other hand, during this period, a significant part of the Republic of Moldova was affected by the devastation caused by the floods that affected much of the territory of the country.

Despite these adverse conditions and time constraints, the Government continued to implement relevant reforms envisaged in the National Development Strategy, and at the same time initiated new ones imposed by the new socio-economic realities, which, complemented the National Development Strategy, and ensured the unblocking of the economic processes, honoring the state’s social commitments, ensuring normal operation of democratic institutions, boosting European integration process, strengthening relations with trade partners and the donor community.
