On 14 June, the Parliament approved the National Concept on Media Development. The draft concept was supported by 53 MPs. The document aims to prove both the adherence of the Republic of Moldova to the European values ​​on media functioning, and the commitment to create an environment enabling the media to operate under economic and editorial independence.

The concept will serve as a benchmark for media-related public policies, such as strengthening the professionalism, adjusting the programs for the vocational training of managers working in the written, audiovisual and online media. The cooperation between all national and international institutions investigating the media will also be strengthened.

The draft concept was submitted by the Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for Mass-Media, Vladimir Hotineanu, who presented the final report of the specialized Committee.

The National Concept on Media Development in the Republic of Moldova has been developed by national and international experts within the Parliamentary Group on Improving the Media Law.
