The second meeting of the participants in the “Transnistrian Dialogues” program took place on 16-17 October in the village of Costesti, Ialoveni district. It was attended by young journalists, entrepreneurs, and students from both banks of the Nistru.

The participants were able to learn about the macroeconomic situation on the two banks of the Nistru River and to discuss potential opportunities for developing their businesses in the region. They met with entrepreneurs who are already receiving grants for business development, but also, through practical sessions, benefited from mentoring in the development of business ideas.

Read about how our first module went here:

The project meetings are held in compliance with epidemiological standards and decisions of the National Emergency Public Health Commission, and participants take the COVID-19 test.

The Transnistrian Dialogues is a programme of the Institute of Strategic Initiatives aimed at reducing the dividing lines between the two banks of the Dniester River by creating a platform for interaction between their populations. The programme is implemented with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Moldova.
