map Moldova
The effects of the prolonged Russian invasion of Ukraine, skyrocketing food and energy prices, trade disruptions, the influx of refugees and declining public confidence have all worsened Moldova’s economic prospects. GDP is certain to decline in 2022 and to stagnate in 2023. Increased funding by international donors and creditors is necessary for the country to cope with the economic challenges and to keep the current Western-oriented leadership in power.
