On 28 July 2022, in Strășeni, a specialised committee was convened to examine the works carried out within the project „Increasing the energy efficiency of the „Ion Vatamanu” lyceum in the municipality of Strășeni”, implemented by Centre Regional Development Agency (RDA) with the financial support of the European Union.

The committee formed by representatives of the Centre RDA, the GIZ, the contractor and the technical supervisor, representatives of the local public authorities, the high school management, representatives of the decentralised services, inspected the project site in order to receive the executed works. The members of the committee accepted the reception at the end of the works, and later the organisation of the final reception and the handover of the investment to the beneficiary will follow.

The following works were performed within the project:

The beneficiaries of these investments are preparing for the inauguration events that will be organised in the coming months with participation of the EU representatives, partners and beneficiaries who have been involved in the implementation of the infrastructure projects.
