Chisinau, June 20 / MOLDPRES /- About two million euros were provided from European Union funds for the construction of the first wastewater treatment plant in the Republic of Moldova in a winery in Puhoi, Ialoveni district, and the inauguration of the station took place late last week.

"We appreciate the efforts of entrepreneurs and development partners to create new opportunities, boost competitiveness and ensure high quality products.
