Moldovan prime minister unveils government’s priorities for 2014

Prime Minister Iurie Leanca presented the government's priorities for 2014 after a cabinet meeting January 15.

Among the priority objectives pointed out by the prime minister, there are: creating new jobs, improving the business environment by removing constraints, stimulating the private sector, promoting the structural reforms, fighting corruption, speeding up the justice reform.

Leanca was optimistic that 2014 would mark a positive economic growth. "We need to focus more intensely on removing constraints, barriers and outdated standards, and replace them by European standards," said the prime minister.

According to Iurie Leanca, the government’s activity this year will continue to focus on improving the quality of life, beginning with the struggle against smoking. These improvements will be followed by the promotion of drinking water supply projects for Moldovan settlements and upgrading the infrastructure.

The prime minister expressed confidence that both the Association Agreement with the European Union would be signed and the visa regime would be liberalised this year.
