Developmental and Regional Cooperation Impact:

The Operation corresponds to the BSTDB Country Strategy for the Republic of Moldova 2015-2018 which assigns priority to financing of the food processing and agribusiness sectors. Given the fact that problems in the Moldovan banking sector prohibit entities in the domestic market to secure long term loans from the domestic banks, BSTDBós financing is a solution for a promising operation. Improved efficiency in production and capacity will likely benefit both upstream and downstream suppliers (such as Moldovan farmers) and consumers. A substantial share of the Borrowerós exports are directed to 6 countries, members of BSTDB, the Operation is expected to contribute to the development of trade in the Black Sea Region.
