Economic Forum in Moldova to promote inclusive finance
On November 15, 2018, the EFSE Development Facility held an Economic Forum in Chisinau, in collaboration with key sector players and other partners, including the Central Banks of Moldova, Armenia, and Georgia. The forum called “Republic of Moldova: Banking Trends versus Economic Developments”, attracted around 100 participants from the Moldovan financial segment as well as from business associations, policymaking bodies, international financial institutions, and local businesses.
The Economic Forum was held as part of the EU4Business initiative and provided an interactive platform for exchange on trends in the Moldovan financial and real sectors. Topics ranged from the most effective way for banks to support long-term, dynamic economic growth, to opportunities and challenges in fostering an inclusive and sustainable business environment. One of the key themes was the role of regulators and banks in supporting sustainable economic development and the advancement of local currency lending to micro and small enterprises (MSEs), which are an important segment of the country’s economy.
