Meeting with Johannes Hahn

Today, Prime Minister Pavel Filip met with Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Negotiations for Enlargement. The meeting took place in Minsk, in the margins of the meeting of the Basic Group of the Munich Security Conference.

During the meeting, the two have discussed the implementation of the reforms in the Republic of Moldova in the context of the recommendations proposed by the EU and the commitments undertaken by our country within its European path.

According to a government communiqué, the prime minister stressed the importance of continuing dialogue with EU partners and high-level communication, stressing that the Chisinau authorities remain committed to meeting the European agenda.

“We will continue reforms in the judiciary, economy, but also in the financial and banking sector,” said Pavel Filip.

In the context of the upcoming parliamentary elections, Pavel Filip mentioned that the Chisinau authorities “will do everything they need to be free and fair”, stressing that the election will be monitored by a team of international observers.

Meeting with Wolfgang Büchelea

During the meeting of PM Filip with the chairman of the German Economic Committee, Wolfgang Büchelea, it was announced that a group of German businessmen investors will visit Moldova next spring.

The prime minister appreciated the presence of German investors in the Moldovan economy – at present, over 400 German-owned enterprises are registered in our country, with investments worth almost 700 million lei in the shared capital.

Among the largest German companies are Südzucker and Dräxlmaier.

“We believe that German investors can benefit from the knowledge already accumulated by the Moldovan labor force in these sectors,” said Pavel Filip.

At the same time, the prime minister invited Wolfgang Büchele to attend Moldova Business Week, which will be held in Chisinau in November this year.

Meeting with the Belarusian Prime Minister, Sergey Rumas

Prime Minister Pavel Filip and his Belarusian counterpart Sergei Rumas reviewed the main joint projects, progress, and sectors, where further efforts are needed.

The parties have agreed to continue the assembly of trolleybuses in Chisinau, as well as the launching of electric buses.

Another field of mutual interest is pharmaceutical. Currently, several Belarusian medicine products are registered in the Republic of Moldova, which are of high quality and at an affordable price.

At the end of the meeting, the Agreement on cooperation in the field of education was signed between the two Governments, which includes the awarding of scholarships to Moldovan students, as well as the cooperation in the field of primary, university and research education.

Reminder: Between October 30 and November 1, Prime Minister Pavel Filip is on a work visit in the Republic of Belarus on the occasion of attending the meeting of the Basic Group of the Munich Security Conference.

More senior state leaders and senior officials were invited to the investiture ceremony of the new President of Ukraine. Among them were Prime Minister Pavel Filip, who wasn’t there, writes ZdG.

According to a press release of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the PM was missing from the Kiev ceremony for “health reasons”, so the Ministry of Foreign Affairs himself, Tudor Ulianovschi, was represented at the ceremony in Moldova.

Several Heads of State were present at Zelenski’s investiture, but Igor Dodon wasn’t among them. However, Dodon had a telephone conversation with Zelenski as a result of which he might have agreed to hold a bilateral meeting.

This is Igor Dodon’s reply after Constitutional Court’s decision that the president can not submit a candidate for the post of PM

Published

President Igor Dodon believes that the election of the Parliament leadership is the only way to overcome the political crisis in the country.

The statement was made for the Russian news agency TASS after the Constitutional Court’s decision that the President of the Republic of Moldova can not submit a candidate to the post of PM in the absence of Parliament’s governing bodies.

“I have mentioned that if until mid-June the governing bodies of the legislature will not be established, I will have to sign the decree of dissolving the Parliament and appointing the date of organizing early parliamentary elections,” warns President Dodon on his Facebook page.

The president stressed that this scenario “is not good” for Moldova, given the risks of stopping investment projects in infrastructure, the emergence of risks in the budgetary system, postponing the creation of the Government and conducting local elections.

We recall that according to the decision of the CC, the impossibility of meeting the Parliament because of the lack of the organ convening it implies the impossibility of the President of the Republic of Moldova to appoint a candidate for the post of PM.

23 foreign citizens registered files in order to obtain Moldovan citizenship through investments

Until now, one person who has applied to the program has already obtained the passport of the Republic of Moldova, the announcement which was made today at a press conference by the Deputy Director of the Public Service Agency (ASP), Iulia Petuhov, an institution that implements Moldova’s Citizenship Acquisition Program through investments.

Iulia Petuhova refused to provide information about the countries from which the files were filed, but stated that they wanted to obtain the citizenship in order to benefit from the investment opportunities offered by our country and to develop their business in Moldova.

Please note that the program to obtain citizenship in return for investment was approved in 2018 by the Government. The authorities then said they hoped to attract at least €1,300,000 over the next 5 years.

According to the program, a foreign investor can acquire the citizenship of Moldova if he transfers at least €100,000 or €250,000 in a strategic business area to the Sustainable Development Fund. The program is promoted by an international consortium selected in an open competition. The consortium includes MIC Holding LLC, Henley & Partners Holdings Ltd, Henley & Partners Government Services Ltd, and Henley & Partners International Ltd.

The authorities have promised that Moldova’s citizenship through investments will only be granted to applicants who “meet the best international standards”.

“These Moldovan citizens of the Republic of Moldova will certainly not be EU citizens because they have no reason to invest in a corrupted economy.” – Maia Sandu

Reminder: The law was criticized by the MPs of the ACUM opposition bloc that declared they pose major risks to state security and citizens’ safety. Previously, Maia Sandu said that Moldovan citizens of the Republic of Moldova will certainly not be EU citizens because they have no reason to invest in a corrupted economy.
