Starting in January 2024, Moldova has assumed the Presidency of the Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea, in line with the initiative’s rotating country coordination. Moldova has taken over this role from Romania, which successfully coordinated the CMA in 2023. Moldova will now set its implementation plan, coordinate, and organise regional events and activities and will leverage achievements of past initiatives, promoting cooperation among participating countries and stakeholder in the region.
Moldova has outlined their key priorities for the 2024, aligning with the overarching CMA goals of healthy marine and coastal ecosystems, fostering investment in the Black Sea blue economy, and a competitive, innovative, and sustainable blue economy for the Black Sea.
Moldova will continue progressing on the CMA implementation, exploring current and future funding opportunities for maritime projects in the region, and showcasing success stories that align with the goals and objectives of the CMA.
