On July 15, EBA organised a Nistru Cruise Reception for its Honorary President and Head of the European Union Delegation in Moldova, Mr. Pirkka Tapiola, who is concluding his mandate in the Republic of Moldova.

EBA members, public authorities, diplomatic corps and international development partners gathered to bid their farewells and best wishes to one of the most prominent diplomats in our country. EBA President, Mr. Thomas Moser, took the floor and underlined the various achievements during Mr. Tapiola’s mandate, among which are the dramatic increase of export of Moldovan goods to the EU market, harmonization of the business environment, insistence on the rule of law, political stabilization, and others. He also accentuated the work done by Olga Tapiola in charities and sustaining local Moldovan artists.

Mr. Tapiola said he was proud with the work of the European Delegation in Moldova and the policy result-oriented activities. He mentioned that the European business community is much more organised through the European Business Association, which will continue to grow and help solve the issues of its member companies. EBA Honorary President concluded that the new Head of the EU Delegation, Mr. Peter Michalko is ready to take over the mandate and become the new Honorary President of EBA.

The event continued with a river cruise on the most beautiful spots of the Nistru river, where the invitees relaxed and enjoyed some quality time together.
