This is a transcript of a roundtable discussion with Iurie Leancă, Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova, Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, held on 7 September 2011 at Chatham House.

The speaker argued that since the coalition government inherited power in Moldova in 2010, significant political and economic developments have taken place which have increased the country's prospects for EU integration. He pointed in particular to heightened media freedoms and strong economic growth. However, he also raised several areas where challenges remain, including enforcement of the rule of law and reform of the judicial system.
