Migration is a phenomenon which experienced an unprecedented scale in the last twenty
years. The socio-geo-politcal and economic changes which tok place in Europe after 190 led to an
influx of people from east to west. Most often those who left their countries came from among the
former socialist countries. This paper is a continuation of a study published last year entiled
“Employment of Labor Force in Albania and Moldova - Evolution and Trends” in which was made a”
snapshot “of the labor situation in the two countries aspiring to acede to the European Union. In this
paper, we focused on the Republic of Moldova as Romania’s neighbor, folowed by a future study to
adres the phenomenon of migration in Albania. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the
phenomenon of migration from the Republic of Moldova and its immediate consequences upon
Romania and the European Union. The hypothesis from which we started this study is that: Romania,
as a friend and neighbor country of the Republic of Moldova, atracts a large number of Moldovan
citzens who become ful citzens, Romanian or of other nationalites in the EU. The study was
conducted during 201-2010 and was based on: the census in Moldova in 204 (last done in this
country), information from the National Bureau of Statistics of the Republic of Moldova, the statistical
database respectively, and information procesed from the Romanian Statistical Yearbok 208.
