GOVERNOR
Romanian Anca Dragu has been designated governor of the National Bank of the
Republic of Moldova for a 7-year mandate. A decision in this respect was
endorsed by Parliament in Chisinau with 58 yes-votes on Friday. The Moldovan
MPs’ decision was motivated by Dragu’s major expertise with Romania’s Central
Bank and with the International Monetary Fund as well as with public and EU
accession policies. Dragu has worked for more than 15 years for Romania’s
Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund and was Public Finance
Minister in Bucharest between November 2015 and January 2017. In 2020 she held
the position of the Romanian Senate president and is presently an MP with the
Save Romania Union.




DAY 22 December
1989 is being celebrated as the Day of the Victory of the Romanian Revolution. It
marks the flight of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu after protests broke
out in Timisoara on 16th December and spread to many other places
around the country and the capital Bucharest. 1,166 people were killed in the
December 1989 uprising, according to the Institute of the Romanian Revolution.
They are commemorated these days in Bucharest and across the country in
military and religious ceremonies. Those who took part in the Revolution and
the families of the victims prayed and laid flowers in the cities were the
fiercest clashes took place.




FLIGHTS From June next year, direct flights from Bucharest to the
United States will be resumed after 20 years. Tickets are already being sold,
as the company in charge of the flights has received permission from the US
Department of Transport. The flights between Bucharest’s Henri Coanda Airport
and New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport will take place four times a week on
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and return. The trip will last under ten hours.
The first flight is scheduled for 7th June 2024.
