                       Chisinau • Moldova | November 08th - 09th, 2012                                                                                                                                                                          LeoGrand Hotel & Convention Center, 77, Varlaam st.

The issue of foreign investments was discussed in Chisinau, for two days, within an Investment Forum. Experts in economics, foreign and local investors, dignitaries and diplomats were discussing the opportunities to improve the investment climate and to attract investments from abroad. At the event were presented some successful examples of Moldovan businesses with foreign capital.

The International Investment Forum was organized on November 8-9th at the initiative of the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Moldova, in collaboration with American Chamber of Commerce in Moldova and Romania and the Moldovan Investment and Export Promotion Organization. The event took place thanks to the support of the U.S. Embassy in Chisinau.

During the event, participants had the opportunity to get acquainted with investment opportunities in Moldova, with Government\'s policies to attract foreign investments and with the measures to encourage the local business.

„The importance of attracting foreign investments remains crucial for the Moldovan economy. The foreign investments, specifically, serve often as a catalyst for the growth of a particular economic field, multiplying the positive effects on related sectors and companies, ultimately improving the citizens\' life. In this context, The Investment Forum aims to facilitate the dialogue between investors and local companies, to focus the attention of foreign investors, including Americans, on specific sectors of the national economy and, hopefully, as a result, to increase the investment flows in the Republic of Moldova. I believe that the Republic of Moldova has considerable potential both in developing the traditional areas and in launching new and exciting businesses”, declared Cristina Harea, President of AmCham Moldova.

The conference was attended by representatives of Moldovan central authorities, international banks, investment funds, American companies that are doing business in Moldova and neighboring countries, representatives of foreign diplomatic missions in the Republic of Moldova, as well as foreign and local investors, owners of investment projects and international experts.

During the event, the representatives of international companies shared their experience of working in Moldova regarding business financing, tax system, legal framework and other areas.

The International Investment Forum was organized thanks to the sponsors and the partners of the American Chamber of Commerce in Moldova: Hideco, Orange, Victoriabank, Dionysos-Mereni, BDR Associates.
