AmCham Moldova has become one of the largest business associations in the country  gathering more than 70 local and international member companies.

On the occasion of its 5th anniversary, the American Chamber of Commerce in Moldova (AmCham Moldova) reiterates its values and objectives with the aim to contribute to the improvement of business climate in the R. of Moldova, as well as to promote social-responsible businesses. In this regard, a series of events celebrating its anniversary brought together AmCham member companies, representatives of the business community, Government of Moldova, international institutions with presence in Moldova, as well as mass media. The events were honored by the presence of HE Mr. William Moser, Ambassador of the USA to the Republic of Moldova.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Moldova, founded in 2006, is one of the largest business associations, gathering more than 70 international and local companies and is officially accredited by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and linked into the global network of more than 112 American Chambers of Commerce worldwide.

During 5 years of activity in the Republic of Moldova, AmCham promoted international best practices and values of trade and investment in Moldova. AmCham has worked closely with the Moldovan government and business leaders in a wide range of activities that include participation in legislative reforms, active sponsorship of new initiatives, direct support for our member companies and much more, all of which is intended to foster a more favorable business climate in Moldova for foreign trade and investment. At the same time, AmCham Moldova actively promotes Moldova, Moldovan trade and commerce, and Moldovan investment opportunities among American and other international investors and potential business partners, with the aim of increasing awareness about investment opportunities in Moldova. 

“In the past five years, the American Chamber of Commerce\'s work on behalf of its members and the wider Moldovan business community has improved the business climate. However, AmCham is more than a business organization. It is a symbol of the type of relationships possible when people work together to achieve a common goal. AmCham members are committed to working with the Moldovan Government and Moldovan business leaders to develop a business climate where Moldovan and foreign firms can succeed. I look forward to AmCham\'s continued successes and the benefits these successes will provide for the Moldovan people in the years to come", said HE Mr. William Moser, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Moldova and Honorary President of AmCham Moldova.

Moldova has a lot of potential for growth and development. While much of this growth will be generated by the private sector, it can not be done without the necessary reforms and support from the government. I am proud of the collaboration that we have built between the American Chamber of Commerce in Moldova, the Moldovan government and many of the international organizations and am certain that we have started moving together down the path that will create the growth and increased prosperity in Moldova that we all know is possible.

I am proud of the continuing effort of our members. Many business leaders have contributed much of their personal time above and beyond what they dedicate to their own companies to improving the overall business climate for everyone’s benefit. Whether it is in the form of supporting and assisting other businesses, contributing to social projects or consulting on legislative and reform efforts, our members are actively working to improve the business climate in Moldova. It is this attitude of collaboration and dedication to the common good that makes me confident that we have a great future”, stated Mr. John Maxemchuk, President of AmCham Moldova.

Along its 5 years of activity in Moldova, AmCham actively promoted the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility.

For such a successful event AmCham would also like to thank:
