Chisinau, 28 September /MOLDPRES/ - The distribution of salary payments by the public authorities might be made through the MPay governmental service of electronic payments. The members of the parliament’s commission for economy, budget and finances today approved the report on the draft on amendment of the law on salary payment and the law on the single system of salary payments in the public sector.
At the today’s meeting, the head of the aforementioned commission, Dumitru Alaiba, said that the adoption of the amendments would boost the technical equipment of the processes of distributing the salary and social payments. ‘’In other countries, there are already only virtual banks, which provide payment services to citizens online quickly, safely and conveniently,’’ the MP noted.
