The economic advantages of GUAM for Republic of Moldova conclude to inefficiency of the free corridors and non-tariff trade barriers

Inefficiency of the free corridors and non-tariff trade barriers -“ these are the results of the Republic of Moldovas membership in GUAM. So, the trade relations between GUAM states are below expectations, probably because of the serious problems that interfere the entrepreneurs while transiting the countries. For example, an investigation conducted by IDIS - Viitorul" in 2008 pointed out that a trade transaction on the route Chisinau -“ Moscow lasted 4 days, from which 32 hours were spent transiting Ukraines territory.

The entrance of local products on the EU market is possible only through complying with food quality and security requirements

For the farm producers from Moldova, the signing of an Agreement of free trade with EU means the opening of a wide market, but also tough competition. In order to be able to meet the requirements, especially the compliance with food quality and security requirements, the Moldovan authorities should speed up the efforts to adjust to European standards. However, at the moment, a major part of the quotas offered for export by EU are not totally used. In order to completely take advantage of the benefits of a possible even more favorable opportunity, it is necessary to create conditions to increase yields and productivity of farm produce.

The Agricultural Land Market in the Republic of Moldova Is a Victim of Failed Reforms

During 1990s the agricultural sector in the Republic of Moldova has been affected by crisis in an irremediable way. The privatization of agricultural land started late and was carried out non-transparently and without respecting social equity principles. A partial and unfair legislation allowed some groups of stakeholders to buy assets at derisory prices and to get control of the best plots of land. These factors played a decisive role in liquidation of a number of former agricultural enterprises (kolkhozes and sovkhozes), which otherwise could have been restructured and privatized. Consolidation of land plots only happened on paper, while failed agricultural reforms discouraged long-term investments in this sector. Under such circumstances, a massive exodus of labour from the agricultural sector occurred, resulting into a lamentable ruination of this sector. Thus, the agricultural land market still remains non-functional and requires a fundamental reform.

Import of agro-food goods causes concern as Moldova can become the country mostly importing these products, experts of IDIS Viitorul

Precum a menţionat marţi, expertul economic al IDIS "Viitorul" Viorel Chivriga, în ultimii ani, ponderea exporturilor de produse agroalimentare în totalul exporturilor moldoveneşti a scăzut vertiginos, de la 61% în anul 2004 până la 39,9% în anul 2007, constată expertul economic al IDIS "Viitorul" Viorel Chivriga. Acest declin este o consecinţă a lipsei de flexibilitate atât în activitatea producătorilor şi exportatorilor de produse agroalimentare, cât şi în cea a autorităţilor.
