The Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure and the Customs Service of the Republic of Moldova last week launched a newCommercial Information Portal for the national and international business community – www.trade.gov.md – established with the support of the USAID Structural Reforms Programme in Moldova.
In a statement on its website, the Ministry said the government’s trade reforms aimed to provide a transparent and predictable environment for cross-border trade transactions, based on simple, standardised customs procedures and practices, documentation requirements, freight and transit operations, trade and transport arrangements.
“The portal www.trade.gov.md becomes the main source of official specialised information regarding the procedures and necessary documents for activities regarding the import, export and transit of goods. Therefore, I urge economic agents to access the Portal and to benefit from its opportunities,” said Sergiu Railean, Minister of Economy and Infrastructure.
Users will be able to find out about customs regimes and destinations, declaration of goods, their classification and origin, quotas, permissive acts, and taxes for all categories of goods, as well as the procedures for obtaining specific authorisations.
The Trade Information Portal of the Republic of Moldova will respond to all the information and consulting needs of the business environment and the general public regarding the regulation of export/import and transit operations of the Republic of Moldova. All information on the portal, including the standard forms required for various procedures and requests, is free.
The Trade Information Portal of the Republic of Moldova was launched in the context of the commitments made by the Republic of Moldova in the world trade system, through the Agreement on Trade Facilitation within the World Trade Organisation and the implementation of the Moldova-EU Association Agreement and DCFTA.
