In a significant development, Germany has pledged to offer Moldova a grant of almost €39 million to support projects related to renewable energy production and energy efficiency. This generous grant was announced during a meeting between the President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, and the German Ambassador to Moldova, Margaret Jubber, on June 12. The meeting served as a platform to discuss bilateral priorities and key areas of future cooperation.
President Sandu expressed her gratitude to the German Ambassador for Germany’s continuous support in the European path of Moldova and for the presence of Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the upcoming summit of the European political community, scheduled for June 1. She underlined Germany’s role as one of Moldova’s strategic partners, emphasizing its steadfast commitment to supporting Moldova’s transformation through various projects in sectors such as agriculture, green energy, defense, public order, and the digital sphere.
This recent grant announcement follows Germany’s ongoing support for Moldova in diverse fields. In late May, the German government announced the allocation of nearly €39 million to finance projects aimed at generating renewable energy and enhancing energy efficiency. Furthermore, at the end of last year, the German government donated 30 vehicles worth approximately €2 million to the Border Police and provided 19 armored troop carriers to support the technical modernization of the National Army.
