Summary/Abstract: Reorganization of mass media activity for the Republic of Moldova became an imperative dictated both by democratization necessities of the whole society and by the obligations that Moldova took in view of the implementation of Action Plan European Union – Republic of Moldova. In this articles is analyzed the efforts to bring the norms and conditions of mass media functioning in Moldova to European standards, that impose the necessity of supporting the tendency to treat the press as a business institution and not as an instrument of political influence. Other challenges are the promotion of western investments in media industry and using economic support to promote the development of independent press. The author came to the conclusion, that the joint efforts of the government, mass media and civil society will determinate the success in society’s democratization.
