EU is funding a package of support for some Moldovan companies, to help them understand more about how they can benefit from tariff-free imports from the Republic of Moldova, and can gain greater access to the EU marketplace. This package will be delivered through a technical assistance project (Support to the Quality Infrastructure Framework within a DCFTA (Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area) Context in the Republic of Moldova), which is funded by the European Union, and implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure.

Which companies can benefit from this?

Which companies can benefit from this?The support will be offered to the companies that are already exporting to the EU but want to learn more about how they can build on their success through a better understanding of the regulations; companies who are thinking about exporting but may not know how to make a start, and think that the regulations may be too complicated for them to overcome. In essence, any company which is aiming to become more competitive through expanding its activities into the European marketplace.

The support package is about providing just as much information to each company as that company needs, in order to benefit from the opening up of the European marketplace. Different companies will have different needs because they have had different levels of experience, therefore a team of national and international experts will work with each company (in-house training) and agree an individually tailored programme.

The time frame for selection and implementation 

The 75 companies need to be selected before the end of January 2019. Then contact will be established with each company during February and early March 2019. The full implementation of the package will take place over a 12 months period, starting in March 2019.
