Project Description
The project “Strategic Communication and Support to Mass-Media” (StratCom) started in January 2019 and is scheduled to end on December 31, 2022. The project has three key components:

Component 1 – Strategic Communication on EU and EU support;
Component 2 – Management of EU Centre in Chisinau and network of EU Information Centres and Euro clubs in the country;
Component 3 – Support for mass-media and media literacy.

The overall objective of the project is to support the successful implementation of democratic reforms in the Republic of Moldova, through increased visibility of EU and EU assistance provided to the Republic of Moldova, thus ensuring a stable, prosperous and democratic future for all its citizens.

The communication and visibility activities undertaken in the framework of this project should make clear reference to the Association Agreement (AA) and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA).
