The Republic of Moldova is continuously transforming, directly affected by regional and global events: the rise in the cost of energy and food products, the security crisis in the region created by the aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, the reformation of value chains and even climate change affecting agricultural production. In this extremely difficult context, in addition to the short-term interventions needed to cope with the current crises, the Government has proposed to define a medium- and long-term development vision, in order to strengthen our resilience to future crises and create the basis for a sustainable and inclusive development of the country.
Spillovers from the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continued to weigh heavily on Moldova. Energy supplies have been disrupted, with significant impact on Moldova, given its dependance on Russia for gas, and on the breakaway region of Transnistria for electricity. The hardship from high energy and food prices and frequent anti-government protests are weighing on Moldova’s fragile social and political fabric.
