Acknowledging the impact of every moment of exploitation, reducing the trafficking period of time should be a priority for all the identification mechanisms in place, in a continuous process of improvement and adapting the actions of all the stakeholders” stated the Director for Operations of SELEC, Mr. Romulus Nicolae Ungureanu.
