The Moldovan president gave assurances that, along with her team, she would do her utmost to create better conditions for living and labour, in order to start businesses and ensure fair access to justice, in order to bring investors, who are to create well-paid jobs. ‘’Equally important is that we work out a clear and inclusive concept of economic growth, with emphasis on small- and medium-sized enterprises, which is to work all over the country. These are simple and natural things, which can yet be a great argument for the new generations, including for the current UTM students,’’ the head of state stressed.
