The National Library of the Republic of Moldova in partnership with the National Children’s Library “Ion Creanga” and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Moldova organized the annual regional conferences during May 28 – June 6, 2024 with the generic theme “The involvement of the libraries in supporting and achieving the National Development Strategy “European Moldova 2030”, which is based on UN Agenda 2030 and the Association Agreement with the EU.

During the regional conferences the aspects related to the implementation of the professional initiatives of the current year are shared and analyzed, identifying the problems that require concentration of efforts at the national level. The regional conferences bring together representatives of all types of libraries of the country.
