Trattato tra Italia e Moldova risultato storico

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 maggio 2017

mmoldova“L’approvazione definitiva da parte del Senato della ratifica del Trattato di trasporti di cose e persone tra l’Italia e la repubblica di Moldova è un risultato storico – perchè dopo 14 anni di attesa, e dopo numerosi tentativi, si è riusciti finalmente ad approvare la ratifica di un trattato che consentirà di regolamentare il trasporto delle cose e delle persone in modo certo, trasparente e soprattutto con condizioni migliori di sicurezza per le molte persone che quotidianamente viaggiano dalla Moldova all’Italia e viceversa” lo dichiara, in una nota, Andrea Causin, deputato di Ap e presidente del gruppo interparlamentare di amicizia Italia – Moldova.“La Moldova è un paese che ha relazioni importanti con l’Italia e che sta affrontando un cammino importante di consolidamento delle proprie istituzioni e un proficuo dialogo con i paesi dell’Unione Europea a con la UE stessa. Ma l’attenzione che abbiamo voluto dare nello specifico della questione trasporti, è data dalla consapevolezza che in Italia vive e lavora una comunità numerosa di oltre 300.000 cittadini moldavi e che il tema della mobilità delle persone e delle merci riveste una importanza fondamentale” aggiunge.Il risultato di oggi è frutto del dialogo tra governi e delle rappresentanze diplomatiche ma non c’è dubbio che lo stimolo e le attività del gruppo di amicizia Parlamentare di questi ultimi due anni siano state l’elemento decisivo per arrivare ad un risultato che mancava da 14 anni. Per questa ragione, desidero ringraziare tutti i componenti del gruppo di amicizia interparlamentare e in modo particolare il Presidente on. Artur Gutium e l’on. Vladimir Cernat, nella certezza che questo è solo un primo passo verso una maggiore collaborazione tra i nostri paesi” conclude.

Dramatic current events in Ukraine

In light of dramatic current events in Ukraine following the Vilnius Eastern Partnership summit one of the most surprising developments in recent years has received little attention. Moldova is set to be the first non-Baltic former Soviet republic to enjoy visa-free travel to the EU. In November 2013, the European Commission proposed to the member states to lift the visa requirements for short-term travel of Moldovan citizens. This puts Moldova ahead of all other countries in the East. EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström announced:”The possibility to travel to the EU without a visa will further facilitate people-to-people contacts and strengthen business, social and cultural ties between the European Union and Moldova. It is my sincere hope that other Eastern partners seeking visa-free travel to the EU will continue to work towards achieving this important goal”. In June 2013 Moldova also concluded talks on its Association Agreement with the EU, including the establishment of a so-called “Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area” (DCFTA). The expectation is that the agreement will be signed in 2014. Moldova is thus the frontrunner. Ukraine, which concluded negotiations on the Association Agreement and DCFTA already in 2011, has recently suspended the process, triggering the current massive protests across the country.

The courage of growing alongside the last

Chisinau (Republic of Moldova), 11-14 October 2011 For the first time, about one hundred Catholics from all over the country will gather in the capital of the Republic of Moldova to discuss the Catholic Church’s contribution to Moldovan society. The courage of growing alongside the last is the unique theme given to the first celebration of the Social Week realised by the small (only one diocese in the whole of the country) but very active Moldovan Catholic Church. “We chose this title because it mirrors our position as a minority Church in the country, but also and especially because we feel the vocation of our Church is that of growing along with those who have nothing, those who feel excluded from society, those who have been deprived of their dignity and humanity” – stated Mgr Anton Cosa, Bishop of Chisinau. He went on to say “Being alongside and for the last does not, however, exempt us from contributing to the growth of Moldovan society, rather it is necessary that, as well as the material and spiritual help which we try to bring to everyone, and especially to the poorest, there should also grow in the Moldovan Church that social diakonia which will enable all our faithful to feel themselves responsible and protagonists in building the common good of the whole nation”.
The meeting, which will begin on Tuesday 11 October with welcomes from Mgr Cosa, from representatives of the government and other Christian denominations in the country, has been organised around three daily themes: the social commitment of Catholics in Moldova (Tuesday 11); poverty and the poor (Wednesday 12) and the commitment of the laity in the economy and social issues (Thursday 13). The theme of each working day will be introduced by representatives from other Social Weeks in Europe, thereby testifying to the link with other similar experiences of European Catholicism: Mgr Arrigo Miglio, Bishop of Ivrea and President of the Social Weeks in Italy; Dr Jean-Pierre Rosa, delegate from the French Social Weeks; and Mgr Giampaolo Crepaldi, Bishop of Trieste and President of CCEE’s Caritas in Veritate Commission for social issues. There will then be reports from Moldovan and European experts, testimonies, such as that on the economy of communion promoted by the Focolare Movement, and ample time for debate. The Council of European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE) will be represented at the meeting by Mgr Crepaldi and by Fr Ferenc Janka, CCEE Deputy Secretary. The presence of CCEE delegates testifies to the attention given to the initiative by the European bishops. In fact, CCEE will have the task of informing the Bishops’ Conferences not just about the outcome of the work, but also on the experience in general, “a training ground and model for many minority Churches which want to invest more in this particular form of social diakonia, a sign and invitation for all Catholic bodies so that, following this example, they may never allow themselves be discouraged by difficulties where charity and the proclamation of the Gospel is concerned”, said Mgr Duarte da Cunha, General Secretary of CCEE. The meeting will end on Friday 14 October with the celebration of Mass in Chisinau Cathedral.
