Summary
• The elections of Joseph Biden and Maia Sandu as presidents of the United States and the Republic of Moldova represent a change in the political landscape in both countries and open a possibility to refresh the cooperation between the two countries.
• The great power and a small power could benefit from reciprocal collaboration and advance their national interests and gains in areas such as security, democracy and good governance, anti-corruption, environment protection, and public diplomacy.
• The Republic of Moldova, a small power, could adopt a strategy of “small but smart” state, to use its smallness as advantage to develop and deepen its national interest in collaboration with the United States.
