Officials from the Moldovan National Standardization Institute will visit Spain next week to learn about the country’s experience in ensuring the quality of services through the implementation of European legislation and standards.
The study visit, which aims at enhancing competition and consumers’ confidence in Moldova, is organised by the Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument of the European Commission (TAIEX) in cooperation with Moldova’s Economy Ministry.
During the two-day visit, the participants will discuss the development and implementation of European standards in tourism, healthcare, transport and energy services. They will also learn about the so-called “smart cities” concept and the certification of personnel in the service area.
TAIEX is a demand-driven tool that supports partner countries with the approximation of national laws, regulations and quality standards to those of EU Member States in the framework of Cooperation or Association agreements signed with the EU. In the Eastern Neighbourhood, TAIEX works with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
