Chisinau, 4 November /MOLDPRES/ - The members of the Regional Council for Development (CRD) and representatives of the South Regional Development Agency (ADR Sud) have recently paid a working visit to the North-East Development Region of Romania. The delegation from southern Moldova visited more settlements and tourist destinations from Romania and collected facts, in order to assimilate and take over from the Romanian experience the good practices in the regional development sector.
The CRD Sud members had meetings with local public authorities from Romania. In the Iasi, Suceava and Piatra Neamt municipalities, as well as the Gura Humorului town, county councils along with the mayoralties of these settlements presented success projects in the fields of urban development, intelligent specialization and innovation, economic development, tourism, as well as the own vision on the regional development process.
"Also, Moldova’s delegation was informed about the agreement between the two countries on regulating the construction of aqueducts, signed in May 2021. Thus, within a cross-border project, the ApaVital Iasi Company will build aqueducts due to cross the Prut river for supply with drinking water from the Iasi county, Romania, of the districts of Nisporeni, Ungheni, Glodeni and Falesti. As a result, a quarter million of citizens from Moldova will be able to benefit from quality water from a Romanian aqueduct,’’ ADR Sud said.
