National Bank of Moldova statistics on the first quarter of 2019, published on Tuesday, show that Israel has overtaken Russia as the leading source of financial remittances from Moldovans working abroad.
It is for the first time in the last two decades when Russia has not held the first place as the source of remittances from emigrant Moldovans.
The plan is for roaming to drop completely by 2021, reported NOVA TV.
The countries of the Western Balkans have agreed to reduce and possibly abolish their roaming charges. Starting in July, the deal will cut prices by 27% in Kosovo, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, northern Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
