Economic cooperation

Since the establishment of the diplomatic relations, the Governments of the Republic of Moldova and Greece put forward a task to create necessary conditions for expanding bilateral cooperation especially in the economic and trade field.

The two countries have already signed a number of important bilateral agreements, thus, ensuring a solid legislative base for the development of commercial and economic dialog. The following treaties are worth noting:

In order to strengthen the economic and investment ties between the Republic of Moldova and the Hellenic Republic, both sides have agreed to organise the first meeting of Moldovan-Greek Joint Inter-ministerial Committee on Economic, Technical and Scientific Cooperation, which took place in Athens on 28-29 November 2007. The Joint Committee was co-chaired by the Minister of Finance of the Republic of Moldova and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Hellenic Republic.

An important impetus to the economic and commercial ties is given by the regular Business Forums that take place successive in different cities. An important economic event, called ”Moldova presents”, took place in Thessaloniki and Athens in September 2008.

According to the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, during the first 9 months of 2008 the foreign trade of the Republic of Moldova with Greece totalled 25,2 million U.S. dollars, indicating a 29,2% growth in comparison with the same period of 2007.
