The Republic of Moldova is a landlocked country in the east of Europe, nestled between Romania and the Ukraine. The country is a parliamentary republic with a president as head of state and a prime minister as head of government. It’s rich soil and temperate climate have made the country one of the most productive agricultural regions since ancient times, and a major supplier of agricultural products in southeastern Europe. Such products include vegetables, fruits, grapes and grains, and the country has a well-established wine export industry. Due to a decrease in industrial and agricultural output following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the service sector has grown to dominate the economy and is over 60% of the nation's GDP.
Since 1991 as a part of an ambitious economic liberalization effort, Moldova liberalised interest rates and all prices, backed steady land privatisation and a convertible currency, stopped issuing preferential credits to state enterprises, and removed export controls. Moldova's remarkable recovery from the severe recession of 2009 was largely the result of sound macroeconomic and financial policies, coupled with structural reforms. This year, the National Development Strategy has outlined structural reforms placing emphasis on the business environment, physical infrastructure, and human resources development areas to aid growth and reduce poverty. It is a member state of the UN, World Trade Organisation and the Commonwealth.
