Chisinau, 14 March /MOLDPRES/ - The Joint Technical Secretariat Office from Iasi (Romania) organized a partnership forum for potential beneficiaries of the Joint Operational Programme Romania – Moldova 2014-2020 in Chisinau today. The goal of the event is to back applicants from both states in setting eligible partnerships for project proposals, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.     

At the Forum, potential beneficiaries were able to unveil their proposals of projects, in order to identify partners from Romania interested in the implementation of these plans in their own communities as well. A first condition for benefitting from grants within the cross-border cooperation programme is that each project accepted be implemented in settlements both in Romania (counties of Botosani, Iasi, Vaslui, Galati) and in Moldova. At the same time, the participants in the meeting were informed about technical aspects of working out and implementing the projects. 

The project’s budget is 89 million euros, of which 81 million is provided by EU through the European Neighbourhood Instrument and the rest – by the partner countries. The money will be earmarked in form of grants, to carry out projects on economic development, improving the citizens’ living standards, through joint actions in education, culture, infrastructure and security.
