The Republic of Moldova can receive 100 million euros from Romania for the local infrastructure and medical system development. Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita said that assistance will be provided in view of the intergovernmental protocol to be resumed between the two countries, reports. “In talks with the Romanian government, we raised the possibility for reviving the protocol on 100 million euros which previously were not spent on time. 65 million should be increased up to 100 million. We discussed that most of the funds from this grant will be spend on local projects,” the prime minister said. The head of Government clarified that the money proposed by the Bucharest government will be invested in the healthcare system to purchase modern medical equipment. Another area for investments will be local infrastructure. In 2010, the Republic of Moldova and Romania signed an agreement under which Bucharest pledged to offer 100 million euros to the Chisinau government. However, the agreement on gratuitous financial assistance expired in March of this year, because the former Chicu-led government did not approve its extension. Thus, the Republic of Moldova could not benefit from 60 million euros of the total amount provided for by the bilateral agreement. Point
