Formerly part of Romania, Moldova was incorporated into the Soviet Union at the close of World War II. Although independent from the USSR since 1991, Russian forces have remained on Moldovan territory east of the Dniester River supporting the Slavic majority population, mostly Ukrainians and Russians, who have proclaimed a "Transnistria" republic. One of the poorest nations in Europe, Moldova became the first former Soviet state to elect a Communist as its president in 2001. (from the CIA)
 
 

 

Economic Overview

Moldova remains one of the poorest countries in europe despite recent progress from its small economic base. it enjoys a favorable climate and good farmland but has no major mineral deposits. as a result, the economy depends heavily on agriculture, featuring fruits, vegetables, wine, and tobacco. moldova must import almost all of its energy supplies. moldova's dependence on russian energy was underscored at the end of 2005, when a russian-owned electrical station in moldova's separatist transnistria region cut off power to moldova and russia's gazprom cut off natural gas in disputes over pricing. russia's decision to ban moldovan wine and agricultural products, coupled with its decision to double the price moldova paid for russian natural gas, slowed gdp growth in 2006. however, in 2007 growth returned to the 6% level moldova had achieved in 2000-05, boosted by russia's partial removal of the bans, solid fixed capital investment, and strong domestic demand driven by remittances from abroad. economic reforms have been slow because of corruption and strong political forces backing government controls. nevertheless, the government's primary goal of eu integration has resulted in some market-oriented progress. the granting of eu trade preferences and increased exports to russia will encourage higher growth rates in 2008, but the agreements are unlikely to serve as a panacea, given the extent to which export success depends on higher quality standards and other factors. the economy remains vulnerable to higher fuel prices, poor agricultural weather, and the skepticism of foreign investors. also, the presence of an illegal separatist regime in moldova's transnistria region continues to be a drag on the moldovan economy.
