 10/29/2023  Bessarabia website goes responsive

Hi everybody,

I'm happy to announce that we have upgraded the Bessarabia SIG website to support mobile navigation.

The new version will display the old desktop design when you come from a PC computer and will show a new mobile adapted design when you browse from your smartphone or tablet.

We hope you'll enjoy using the new site - let us know what you think, by contacting our leadership.
