Mon, 12/09/2019 - 12:30
Prime Minister, Ion Chicu, has visited today the Engineering vocational school with dual – type education system after the German model, located in district Straseni and created within the Balti Free Economic Area (ZEL).

Our children, after they become engineers, will have the opportunity to work here, which is why we want to develop industrial platforms all over the country," said PM, adding that on it, it will be held discussions with large investors from Moldova, interested in developing such centres.   Ion Chicu has also discussed with pupils.
