An investment forum takes place in Chisinau
There’s an investment forum taking place at Chisinau, between the 8th and 9th of November, organized by the “Ascent” consultancy company.
As the NOVOSTI-MOLDOVA agency communicates, managers of the 24 countries of the EU have been invited to the event, managers that have been successfully and longly unfolding their activities on the Romanian market.
According to the Minister of Economy and Trade, Mr. Igor Dodon, “the investment potential in the Republic increases year by year”. Thus, if in 2000 the foreign companies investments reached up to 142 million dollars, in the first six months of 2007, this value already exceeded 200 million dollars. There are 5000 companies from 80 countries, unfolding their activity at present, in the Republic. Since 1994, foreign investments in the republic’s economy gathered a total value of 1.4 billion dollars.
In Dodon’s opinion “today, Moldova offers unique possibilities for business people, thus becoming a business starting lead – with the West and with the Middle East”. The Minister also mentioned that RM has free exchange agreements with 10 CSI States and asymmetrical trade regime “+JSP” with the EU. Besides, the Republic gains trade preferences also within the Stability Pact for South-Eastern Europe.
Dondon declared to the Forum participants, that “during 2007-2008 the capital’s amnesty will take place, which, according to the Government, it will bring billions of dollars profit. In parallel with these processes, there are six industrial parks worked at in the Republic. The most representative is the Giurgiulesti International Harbor, having the capacity of receiving tones of oil. All the above may contribute in the most serious way on the development of the contractor’s initiatives”.
