Pavel Filip

The Republic of Moldova welcomes investment by international companies. Me and my Government strive to improve the conditions for your continued success. During the last years, the automotive sector was one of the fastest growing industries in Moldova. For sure this is a result of our Association Agreement with the EU, an agenda which we commit to further follow and implement. My Government's comprehensive reform agenda further improved the Moldovan business environment. Today, we are proud to host many of the key international players in the automotive supplier business. Many of these companies decided to extend their operations, others came as first timers to Moldova. We are keen and committed to pave the way for many more companies. We will do our very best to support our economy’s attractiveness for the European Automotive business.
