Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen has informed that the European Union will increase the macro-financial assistance to Moldova up to 295 million euros.
The statement was made during an official visit of the high-ranking guest to Chisinau, agora.md reports.
“Before coming here, I visited Ukraine and saw with my own eyes the terrible destruction caused by Russia’s illegal war and brutal attacks on civilian infrastructure, which also affect your country. The consequences for gas and electricity prices are a great challenge for you. We are working hard to alleviate this burden, and we are determined to increase macro-financial assistance to €295 million,” Mette Frederiksen said during a meeting with Moldovan President Maia Sandu.
The President expressed hope that Moldova will resume cooperation with DANIDA, the Danish International Development Agency, and that the countries will intensify bilateral cooperation in various fields.
“We would like to cooperate in the field of renewable energy. The energy crisis that we are currently experiencing has forced us to focus on the country’s energy independence, especially on renewable or clean resources. We highly appreciate the preliminary visits of representatives of some Danish companies to Moldova in this field,” Maia Sandu said.
As previously reported, Moldovan President Maia Sandu met with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen. The head of the Danish government makes a short stop in Moldova during her visit to Ukraine.
