Chisinau asks for EU assistance for SMEs during pandemic

Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița, who is in Brussels on a visit, and European Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni discussed the necessity of making headway with the recovery of the money stolen as a result of the bank fraud. The Premier underlined the firm commitment to investigate and recover these funds, noting that a functional legal system is needed for the purpose. Natalia Gavrilița asked for the European partners’ assistance in strengthening the sustainable mechanisms for supporting the small and medium-sized companies in Moldova, including by introducing partial unemployment and technical unemployment mechanism, so that these cope with the challenges during the pandemic, IPN reports, quoting the Government’s press service.

The two officials discussed the reforms in the customs and fiscal sectors. In this connection, Premier Gavrilița provided details about the adoption of the Customs Code that was adjusted to the EU legislation, this being one of the important conditions for extending the cooperation with the EU in the customs sector. The new Code aims to unify, modernize and improve the customs legislation and to align this with the commitments undertaken by Moldova through the Association Agreement with the EU.

The Premier also spoke about the importance of the Eastern Partnership and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, saying the Government’s policies are aimed at developing the economic model that matches the European economic model, being centered on digitization, energy efficiency and green economy.

Natalia Gavrilița expressed her gratitude for the support from which the Republic of Moldova benefitted through the OMNIBUS MFA program and for the decision to disburse the second tranche of OMNIBUS assistance of €50 million, which is expected to come to Moldova at the start of October.
