"Regarding investment aspect, we welcomed the arrival of the Transylvania bank on the Moldovan market and natural gas enterprise TransGaz in Chisinau", said Prime Minister Pavel Filip.
The Iasi-Ungheni-Chisinau gas pipeline is not only priority of Chisinau and Bucharest but also a major project on the EU agenda within the Eastern Dimension policy, declares the Romanian Premier, Viorica Dăncilă.
"The Iasi-Ungheni-Chisinau project reconfirms Romania's role as the main partner of Moldova consistently in the European integration effort, including in relation to the effective connection to the European space," said Romania's Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă.
The two dignitaries also discussed the Moldova' domestic reforms and actions in external plan.
