UTA Gagauzia region becomes more attractive to tourists
The first tourist complex with Gagauzian specific from Republic of Moldova was launched on 6 November 2018 in Congaz village, Comrat district. Besides four traditional peasants’ houses with walls made of clay and roofs made of reed, the ethno-tourist complex “Gagauz Sofrasi” hosts a museum, cellar, national style restaurant with terrace, as well as a mini-hotel and an events’ hall.
To develop and promote this complex, the owner benefited from mentoring and a grant of 18,500 Euro from the European Union, through the SARD Programme, implemented by UNDP.
A new park, situated next to the bank of Cahul River, was inaugurated also on 6 November.  This was possible with the financial assistance of the European Union and the contribution of local and regional public authorities.
Also, the riverbed of Cahul River was rehabilitated for a segment of 3 km. Over several years, the ecological situation of river which crosses the town became a real threat for the inhabitants. Its riverbed was not cleaned for years and was totally stalled. Thus, after a heavy rain, the river would swell up and flood in all the nearby households.
The total cost of the project for cleaning the Cahul River and designing the park accounted for 126 thousand 942 Euro, out of which 70 thousand Euro were provided by the European Union, and the remaining amount was covered from the regional and community budgets.
Financed by the European Union with 6.5 million Euro and implemented by UNDP, the “Support for Agriculture and Rural Development in ATU Gagauzia and Taraclia District” (SARD) Programme aims to foster the collaboration between central and local authorities, as well as among regional organizations from Gagauzia and Taraclia district, so as to contribute to the social and economic development of the region, and of the Republic of Moldova in general. The SARD Programme conducts activities to empower communities, rehabilitate social infrastructure, promote inter-municipal cooperation and implement the European initiative of rural development – LEADER in ATU Gagauzia and Taraclia district.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
