Mr. Eivind Tandberg, IMF Public Financial Management Advisor based at the Center of Excellence in Finance (CEF), worked in Chisinau during June 11-15, 2007.

He also discussed plans for coordination between the budget process and the National Development Plan for 2008 2011. The mission found that the Moldovan authorities have continued to implement public financial management reforms very effectively and that the National Development Plan process provides an important window of opportunity for reconciling and integrating the strategic planning and medium-term budget processes.

Mr. Tandberg met with the First Deputy Prime Minister, the management and staff of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy and Trade, the Social Fund, the Health Fund, and the World Bank.
