The Digital Transformation Committee was created in 2020 as a channel for dialogue between AmCham's members and important government regulators in Moldova such as the Ministry of Finance, National Bank of Moldova, Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, e-Governance Agency, and so on. The Digital Transformation Committee provides an active platform for AmCham Member Companies to influence the current and future decisions made by Moldovan lawmakers related to the industry and train and educate each other on developments and best practices in the field.
About the Committee
The Committee is conceived as a place for companies representing the digital transformation sphere (e.g., banks, payment service providers, international payment systems, FINTECHs, IT companies) and others interested in e-commerce and digital transformation per se companies.
Committee members participate in Committee events and meetings and take an active role in Committee's activity, thus contributing to the enhancement of the business-friendly digital transformation regulatory framework in Moldova, harmonized with the best international practices.
The Committee is open to individuals who have occupations relevant to the Committee's stated mission and whose companies are members of the AmCham. We kindly invite every interested member to join our efforts.
The mission of the Committee is to enhance the Moldovan digital transformation plan by acting as a lobby and advocacy group; to identify and promote issues related to and in support of the actors involved in digital transformation from the business side, and to provide a forum for dialogue among sector professionals and decision-makers in Government, as well as to serve as an educational, networking and information exchange forum for the business community involved in digital transformation.
The purpose and goals of the Digital Transformation Committee are to promote the Moldovan business community's digital transformation agenda, including G2B2G, B2B, and B2C perspectives, through regulatory advocacy activities and information exchange in the interests of AmCham members.
The Committee will work on topical issues relevant and significant to businesses, including local and international payment system provider issues, e-commerce challenges, e-systems and products designed for the business community by the Government, and so on. By raising awareness, stimulating development, and advocating for change, it hopes to strengthen the Moldovan digital market and make the Moldovan economy more competitive.
Also, the focus on the following objectives should be maintained:

The Committee, as a part of AmCham
The Committee is a part of AmCham and therefore shares AmCham's mission and its values.
In that spirit, no Committee member, including Co-Chairs, shall express personal views on behalf of the Committee and therefore the AmCham, unless they represent an official and approved position by the Board of Directors.
No Committee member shall in the name of Committee or AmCham discuss issues that are not related to its mission. All activities of the Committee shall be done in direct coordination and communication with AmCham Committee Coordinator.
AmCham Moldova is acting as the local point of the project in regard to the e-commerce business community, by being the platform that incorporates companies from almost all the phases of the e-commerce supply chain (production, payments including alternative innovative Fintech solutions, logistics, and other).
