Moldovan PM meets rural entrepreneurs


    According to a report from the Moldovan government’s communication and protocol department, Moldovan prime minister Pavel Filip took an official one day visit to the central Orhei district. There, he met several entrepreneurs from the Braviceni village and asked for their input and vision with regards to the potential measures the cabinet should take to support the development of local entrepreneurship.

    The prime minister stated that the model of development followed by Braviceni village, which allowed attracting external funds and developing a string of new businesses in the community, by creating well-paid jobs, should be an example worthy of being followed by other settlements as well. “Where there is resolution, where there is determination, a lot of problems can be solved. Over 80 per cent of the Braviceni residents have well-paid jobs here, at home,” Pavel Filip said.

    The prime minister visited an enterprise specialized in milk processing and preparation of dairy products, including different types of pressed cheese and cream, products that are afterwards distributed and sold in Moldova. The enterprise provides jobs to 104 people from the village, about 80 per cent of whom are women.

    Prime minister Pavel Filip also discussed with managers of a cooperative specialized in processing fowl products and rabbit meat goods. The prime minister showed his interest in the production process, the economic agent’s relation with the authorities and the enterprise’s future development plans.
    The community in Braviceni deserves serving as a national example, proving that even in rural communities entrepreneurs can emerge. Furthermore, by creating jobs at the grassroots level and in the small communities, the massive exodus of young people is prevented and more of them are motivated to remain home and work in their local settlements.

    At the end of his visit, the prime minister congratulated the entrepreneurs and encouraged them to further develop their business, create new jobs and contribute to the modernization of the local infrastructure.
