The project "School of Business AOAM", with an initial performance in Moldova, aims to develop entrepreneurial skills, training and advising young people who want to develop or start a business. The program also aims to boost business and entrepreneurship in the country.
"I hope that in these two days you will learn a lot, you'll leave with a knowledge base, with helpful tools for those who already have a business or want to launch it. We have chosen Balti as a first destination because here we found a great receptivity and openness from USARB. Supporting young entrepreneurs is a key question for Moldovan Business People Association, so we launched this project delivering useful information for young entrepreneurs. By this we contribute to sustainable development, to a steady development of Moldova", said CEO of Moldovan Business People Association, Olesea Munteanu.
"North RDA has gladly accepted to be a partner of this intensive training to develop human capital and business support in the region. North RDA is a structure of the Ministry of Regional Development and Construction, implementing infrastructure projects, but it is very important who will develop and who will work here in the region. From this point of view, Moldovan Business People Association gives us the necessary support to develop this aspect", said the North RDA Director, Ion Bodrug, thanking to the representatives for Moldovan Business People Association and USARB for a future fruitful collaboration.
