Chisinau Cabinet of Ministers chief has also spoken of the terms our country has to complete to receive those money.
"We have 28 conditions to complete to gain all 100 million of macro-financial assistance. Plainly speaking they all view laws, reforms and are tied with justice and banking system, as well as fighting corruption. I cannot say that those term were imposed on us, as it is something Republic of Moldova wished for itself, as we are interested in fulfilling those reforms" Pavel Filip said.
The macro-financial assistance program for our country foresees 40 million euro given as grant and 60 million euro as loan. They will be transferred in 2018, in 3 equal tranches.
