    Dear Caroline,
    In my quality as Consul of the Republic of Moldova in the United Kingdom I would like to express my gratitude for your interest on the topics related to Republic of Moldova.

    I would like to bring to your attention that in October 2012 in Chisinau will be held the Wine Festival. Moldovan authorities are interested in inviting foreign journalists and experts to witness the event in the period from 5th to 10th October 2012, and then to share their observations with foreign audience. Moldovan authorities with the support of USAID will cover the costs of the trip (transport, accommodation, meals) for ten journalists with the most successful profile. A USAID Committee will be created to choose the winners.

    If you are interested in taking this opportunity, please do let me know. Of course you will have to send me you profile (biographic note, your works, etc. and why the Committee should choose you).
