“The effects of the war in Ukraine, as well as the suspension of the work of the border crossing points on the central (Transnistrian) segment of the Moldovan-Ukrainian state border clearly shows the change of the logistic chains and a more pronounced reorientation of the commercial and economic activity from the region to the EU market, as well as the boosting of the cooperation with the right bank of the Dniester River,” reads a press release by the Reintegration Policies Bureau.
According to the state register of the legal entities and private entrepreneurs, 2,336 economic agents from the Transnistrian region were registered in subdivisions of the Public Services Agency, of which 1,850 were provisionally registered. (Moldpres/Business World Magazine)
