Moldova intends to seek the abolition of customs duties on imports of wine products, fruit, vegetables and canned food

This was stated by the President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, during the business-conference "Russia – Moldova: expansion of business cooperation". Dodon stressed the importance of agriculture in cooperation of Russia and Moldova and to increase the access of products of Moldovan companies in the Russian market.

"We have increased the number of enterprises, and in the coming weeks there will be more experts of the Rosselkhoznadzor and Rospotrebnadzor. We already ask for a list of companies that we would recommend to visit", — said Igor Dodon.

Another problem, according to the President of Moldova, for customs duties. "Yes, we returned the enterprise to the Russian market, but the customs duties that exist in the products of agriculture, make our products less competitive. Today I will address the issue again: we are seeking the cancellation of customs duties, at least at this stage, on four commodities – wine, fruit, vegetables and canned goods. I hope that in the near future we will be able to achieve this", noted Dodon.
