Cross-border trade represents a topic of importance for members. Following the meeting with Vadim Gumene, State Secretary, Ministry of Economy, AmCham Moldova met with the new leadership of Customs Service to reconfirm the strategic areas of collaboration. Within these meetings, AmCham Moldova delivered that main business regulatory challenges that if solved, will scale up the cross-border trade.
Environmental legislation continues to be a hot topic within the Committee. Within the last two weeks, the Committee members met to discuss the concepts of amendments on ”packaging fees”. AmCham Moldova officially became a member of the Ministry of Environment working group to elaborate the financial mechanism on EPR.
The Committee members also had the opportunity to attend the public discussions on supporting the local producers, an event that had the Law on domestic trade as a focal topic. Following these discussions, AmCham Moldova facilitated a dialogue between the Ministry of Economy representatives and members of AmCham Romania to find more details on the regulatory impact of quite similar legal provisions.
