IT equipment donated to the National Employment Agency to support the integration of Ukrainian refugees in the Moldovan labour market

Chisinau, May 23 – Today’s meeting with Raisa Dogaru, Director of the National Employment Agency (NEA), and Lars Johan Lönnback, Chief of Mission of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to the Republic of Moldova, formalized the donation of IT equipment to 26 NEA’ Territorial Subdivisions across the country.
The donated equipment, worth 38,000 US dollars, aims to enhance the National Employment Agency’s operational capacities to respond to community needs, support and integrate Ukrainian refugees in the Moldovan labor market.
The Director of the National Employment Agency, Raisa Dogaru, commented:
"For many years already, the National Employment Agency has had a strong partnership with the IOM in the Republic of Moldova. This generous donation will allow our Agency to work more efficiently on the integration of Ukrainian refugees into our labour market."
Lars Johan Lönnback:
"Since the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, IOM has been committed to the socio-economic inclusion of Ukrainian refugees. The National Employment Agency is vital in this regard, including through the work it is carrying out with the RESTART reform. I want to express our thanks for the very important collaboration and partnership between IOM in the Republic of Moldova and the National Employment Agency, and thanks to the United States Government for generously financially supporting today's donation." 
This donation was made possible thanks to the US Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) within the project “2023 Ukraine Response to support refugees from Ukraine across Europe”.
