New five-year strategy for investment and small business support in Moldova

December 6, 2017

The Board of Directors of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has approved a new strategy for Moldova, which will guide the Bank’s investments and policy work in the country for the next five years, including key priorities in partnership with the EU4Business initiative.

Among the priorities the 2017-2022 strategy sets out is the restructuring of the banking sector to make finances available for the country’s businesses, including under the EU4Business initiative. Other priorities include enhancing energy security, supporting private firms, promoting commercialisation of public utilities and improving infrastructure.

EU4Business programmes – which are funded by the European Union, and several of which are implemented by the EBRD – complement the efforts of the Moldovan government by improving access to finance, helping SMEs move into foreign markets and providing training to build up business skills. Specific technical help is available to Moldovan SMEs to make sure they can make the most of the country’s free trade agreement with the EU.
