Abstract: The policies and decisions of association and economic integration of the Republic of Moldova
into the European economic social system have a pseudo-scientific, contradictory, fragmentary character. The
implementation of these policies of association and European integration, beginning with the '90s and so far
were not based on the principles developed and promoted by the modern and current economic growth
theories and on the Association Agreement of the Republic of Moldova to the EU. All th ese actions of the
government has led to the stagnation of the process of association and national economic integration into the
EU, the deepening of instability and imbalances in the local economic system, to the increase of the level of
vulnerability and to social constraints in comparison with EU c ountries. The results of the economic policies
carried out in the years 2000 to 2015 confirms that from the point of view of social-economic development
and the level of Association and economic integration, the Republic of Moldova is found more in the
achievement of small and fragmented steps of conception of economic-financial integration instruments,
reflected in modern and current economic theories. These processe s have led to the inability of the State as to
define its own objectives and priorities of development and socio-economic integration, as well as legitimized
a continuous transition integration condition to the developed European economic market.

In this article is proposed a real change of the development policy and socio-economic integration of the
Republic of Moldova into the EU in perspective, namely: highlight and implementation in policies and decisions
of association and economic integration of the principles put forward by the neoclassic and neoconservative
synthesis theories. The association policies and economic integration promoted by these theories serve as basis
for monitoring and coordinating the strategy of Moldovan –European economic integration and a nticipation o f
imbalances and economic stabilization, in order to minimize the effects of global and regional crisis on the
Republic of Moldova, for adaptation of as sociation and integration policy to national socio-economic conditions.
It is also necessary to implement a system of actions to facilitate the i ntegration of productive consumption, of
the technical progress and the growth of labor productivity, as well as attracting f oreign investment in
interactionist priorities for innovation development of the country's economy. These assumptions arise from
scientific analysis of the conditions that contribute to the expansion of the economic recession in the Republic of
Moldova and from the study of main factors affecting the sustainable economic growth.
