The meeting of the Chairs of parliamentary committees of the European Union countries will be opened by President of Moldova Maia Sandu, President of the Parliament of Moldova Igor Grosu and Prime Minister Dorin Recean. At the meeting, which will last all day, the issues relating the Moldova’s EU integration, economic development and security, including energy security, will be discussed with the participation of the representatives of the Parliament and the Government of Moldova.
