These relationships extend beyond the workplace, fostering personal friendships, family connections, and cultural partnerships, intensifying the friendship between Moldova and Italy. The Moldovan community in Italy serves as a bridge between the two countries and a pillar of collaboration. Their daily interactions strengthen mutual friendship and willingness to cooperate. Naturally, we will be very attentive to the needs and demands of the Moldovan community in Italy,” said Italian President Sergio Mattarella.
