It will now be easier for Moldovans to become migrant workers
President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier paid a two-day official visit to Moldova. The agenda of the visit includes negotiations with the president, prime minister, and deputies. Also, the German President took part in the opening of a joint Moldovan-German business forum, visited the National Museum of Ethnography and Natural Science of the Republic of Moldova and the College of Engineering in Straseni, met with the mayors of those cities and villages where projects funded by the German government were implemented.
Following the talks, the Presidents of Moldova and Germany spoke at a joint press conference.
According to the German guest, on this visit to Chisinau he saw a “spirit of change” that did not exist several years ago. And it is this “spirit of change” that Germany is ready to support, said Steinmeier, who has no doubts that Moldova is on the right track.
“The European Union needs stability and prosperity in its eastern neighbors. And the reforms in Moldova are probably the most courageous example in the entire region. The success of reforms in your country will spread beyond your borders. I am sure that Moldova is on the right track. Political reforms, the fight against corruption, and functional governance all serve as the foundation for a society that provides citizens with a dignified life and opportunities for fulfillment. This is the foundation for European integration ”,
– said the President of Germany and promised support, cooperation and German investments in the Moldovan economy, which will help Moldova to confidently move “along the path of success.”
Steinmeier arrived in Chisinau not empty-handed – he brought additional financial assistance in the amount of 10 million euros. This aid is intended to create additional jobs for young people in Moldova to slow the outflow of population from the country.
In addition, the German President promised to strengthen German participation in the Moldovan economy, and the extent to which this participation will be increased will become known after the Moldovan-German government consultations in November, Steinmeier said.
Well, for those Moldovan citizens who still want to look for work in Europe, the President of Germany has also prepared a gift: starting next year, all of them will be able to officially work in seasonal jobs in Germany. The fact is that most of the asylum seekers in Germany are Moldovans; now they can work in German fields quite legally. So, the European perspectives open up for the Moldovan youth – to work in the fields and farms.
