Chisinau, 23 November /MOLDPRES/- The promulgation decree and the Law amending Law No438/2006 on regional development in the Republic of Moldova were published in today's issue of the Official Journal.

The document provides for the amplification of the accents of the regional development policy including all the regions of the Republic of Moldova, not only the least developed ones. Thus, the project reformulates the general objective of regional development: increasing the competitiveness and sustainable development of each region, adjusting disparities and increasing the quality of life of citizens.

Also, the provision of the allocation of the means of the National Fund for Regional Development to the disadvantaged areas of the development regions is excluded, following the competitiveness of all regions and their economic development.
