Plenipotentiary Representative of Moldova to EEC Oksana Grechany first attended EEC Board meeting


On May 26, Oksana Grechany, Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of the Republic of Moldova to the Eurasian Economic Commission, attended the meeting of the EEC Board for the first time.

Prior to the meeting, Daniyar Turusbekov, Director of the EEC Organizational Support and Protocol Department, met with Oksana Grechany, who delivered a copy of the letter from Ion Chicu, Prime Minister of Moldova, to Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the EEC Board, on vesting her with authority.

​"I am confident that this appointment will serve to further develop comprehensive interaction between the Republic of Moldova, the Eurasian Economic Commission and the Eurasian Economic Union Member States,"
Ion Chicu stressed in the letter.

Mikhail Myasnikovich welcomed Oksana Grechany at the meeting of the EEC Board, wishing her success at this responsible position.

"It is very important for us to take part in the meetings, especially considering that Moldova is the first Observer State at the EAEU. We hope that we will set a good example, and other countries will follow our example," Oksana Grechany noted.

The Republic of Moldova was granted the Observer State status at the EAEU on May 14, 2018 by the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council.
