Moldova in Partnership with the UAE

The development of the bilateral relations between the UAE and Moldova, considering their mutual interest in advancing economic and trade cooperation, was reflected in several high-profile visits between the two countries. At a time when Moldova is pushing ahead with reforms and investments in various economic sectors, Dubai-based companies can lend their expertise to assist in the achievement of selected country development goals. This initiative has started with the UAE-Moldova Business Forum, organized by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry on May 9th 2018 in Dubai.
