Chisinau, 23 September /MOLDPRES/ - The farmers and economic agents who have farmlands beyond the Rabnita-Tiraspol highway will benefit from a green corridor through the internal customs checkpoints and will no longer face difficulties when carrying the harvest, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.
The farmers will no longer pay the tax of 3,000 lei for the certificates issued by the Chamber of Commerce, which confirm the goods’ native origin. Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita announced the change at a meeting with more farmers from the eastern Dubasari district.
One of the solutions proposed is that the carriage of the agricultural production is made based on a confirmatory act released by the Dubasari district council. At the same time, the local mayoralties are to release a certificate about the plot of land’s size. Based on these two documents, farmers might carry the harvest through the internal customs checkpoints.
„I want to make sure that this will be a correct and fair process; we hope that competent people will manage to ensure this solution locally,’’ the PM said.
The participants in the meeting discussed also the issue of the taxes imposed by the structures from the left bank of Dniester, as well as the impediments created through the crossing points. The sides also tackled potential changes to the regulation on subsidization in agriculture. In the context, the prime minister stressed that the mechanism of providing subsidies in agriculture was presently in process of adjusting, so that maximal transparency, fairness and efficiency is ensured.
The mayor of the Cocieri village, Raisa Spinovschi, said that the today’s visit by the PM showed an increased attention on behalf of the authorities for the settlements from the left bank of Dniester, which are under the jurisdiction of the Chisinau authorities.
Five mayoralties from the Dubasari district (Molovata Noua, Cocieri, Cosnita, Dorotcaia and Parata) have lands placed beyond the Rabnita-Tiraspol highway. It is about 9,544.62 hectares of lands, of which 6,499 hectares on agricultural purpose.
