On Friday, the Moldovan Parliament will begin its plenary sitting at 1400 local time with an address to the forum to be made by Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Union’s Commissioner for External Relations and the European Neighbourhood Policy, who asked 40 minutes for her speech.

Benita Ferrero-Waldner is coming to Chisinau on Thursday afternoon, and will have a meeting with Moldova’s Acting President, Parliament Chairman Mihai Ghimpu shortly upon her arrival.

On Thursday, the Parliament will start its ordinary plenary sitting in the morning. The agenda contains quite many important questions, including amendments to the 2009 State Budget, an agreement on reciprocal recognition of higher-education diplomas between the Republic of Moldova and Romania, and other.
