In this respect, the government approved the Single Programme Document (DUP), which contains 46 projects on regional development, which are to be implemented in the country’s regions and settlements during 2022-2024, with an estimated cost of 1.5 billion lei. The money is meant to enhance people’s access to the infrastructure of water and sewerage systems supply, public spaces’ modernization, etc. At the same time, Natalia Gavrilita informed that the backing of settlements would be a priority also for the non-refundable assistance provided by Romania.
