Originally developed by international NGO Development Gateways, the AMP is a public portal of the Government of Moldova; it is a tool for tacking the aid flows throughout the country.

The new AMP will facilitate the work of the Development Partners who, as main platform contributors, are responsible to regularly input data and ensure the information displayed is always up to date.
In his opening speech, the State Secretary from the Ministry of Finance Ion Gumene highlighted the importance of the AMP as the main government tool showcasing the volume and the significance of foreign development assistance in Moldova. PPF Project IT expert Leonidas Crisciunas demonstrated first-hand to the participants the new features in comparison to the old version while PPF Project External Assistance expert Rachel Mac Gowan stressed the importance of displaying accurate information on AMP through regular updates of the platform.
Feedback from the session will be reflected on the platform before the go-live and launch of public portal of the new AMP which is scheduled to take place shortly.
