The government approved today the 100 million euro non-reimbursable financial aid for the Republic of Moldova, agreed with the Chisinau executive in support of the country's European course.
In the health field, the new framework for providing medical services has been established starting with April 1, with the extension of the basic service packages in primary health care and the possibility of providing them not only in the family doctor's office, but also at the patient's home or place of request. Important decisions have also been made in the energy sector.
Next week, the call for projects will be launched for companies that want to access money from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan to install renewable energy production capacities - announced the Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, specifying that the cost will reach 460 million euros.
Virgil Popescu: Priority will be given to companies with a self-consumption of at least 50%. So, practically, the industry, economy, agriculture, and the food industry will benefit from this aid if they access these 450 million euros and will demonstrate that they will be able to use efficiently their roofs, places, and land available to install photovoltaic parks or wind turbines and will consume at least 50% of the energy produced.
Reporter: Also, the state will take only 50% of the profit from Nuclearelectrica and Romgaz - the Minister of Energy also said, the remaining 50% being left for investments.
Virgil Popescu: Two companies that are involved in large projects, Romgaz and Nuclearelectrica, are exempted from paying 90%, the percentage being reduced to 50% of the dividends that the Romanian state takes from the two companies.
Reporter: Virgil Popescu also announced the extension until 2023 of the bonus scheme for high-efficiency cogeneration for CHPs, explaining that there is the approval of the European Commission in this regard, and companies can access the money for investments.
