The artists from the theatre and concert institutions will get a 25-per cent salary increase, the teachers - a one-off payment of 5,000 lei and the non-didactic staff – 3,000 lei. It is for the first time that each person from Moldova’s education system will receive such an allocation. We want to continue these increases and we will do this, as the teachers matter.

This year, the deliveries of sweet cherries to EU increased 12-fold. Such success stories of our producers motivate us to continue the opening of new markets and opportunities, encourage the Moldovan farmers to modernize their businesses and provide quality products. We see how only blackmail and embargoes are coming from Russia, while from Europe and the West – free trade, stability and support for our farmers,’’ PM Recean added.
