Prime Minister Ion Chicu and Managing Director of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) for Eastern Europe and the Caucasus Matteo Patrone today signed a financial arrangement worth 50 million dollars. The arrangement will allow purchasing natural gas for the supply of the entire territory of Moldova during one month, in case of emergency situation.   „The arrangement signed today is a test of the good relations between Moldova and EBRD. We resorted to this mechanism, in order to complete the set of alternative solutions of supply with natural gas of Moldova’s consumers, in case of emergency situations, which do not depend on the government’s decisions. We are grateful to EBRD for this good help offered friendly and I am absolutely sure that the number of projects carried out in Moldova with EBRD’s support, as well as other foreign partners will increase on the next period,” Ion Chicu said.      The Prime Minister said that he further relied on the traditional means of delivery of gas with transit through Ukraine. “We count on the fact that the two sides, Russia and Ukraine, will reach common mind and Moldova will receive natural gas at a more advantageous price,” the Moldovan official said.   For his part, Matteo Patrone said that “the financial mechanism on which we agreed today is a one more proof of EBRD’s commitment for Moldova.

This is just the definition of a “friend in need.”   The EBRD Managing Director for Eastern Europe and the Caucasus Matteo Patrone also said that the participants in a today’s meeting of the EBRD Board had discussed including the co-financing of the construction of the Iasi-Ungheni-Chisinau gas pipeline.     The financial arrangement signed today sees that Moldova commits to reform the gas sector, such as the elaboration of the secondary legislation on the liberalization of the natural gas market and diversification of the supply sources.
