The EU4Business and EU4Environment programmes are both hosting events at the 20th edition of the national ‘Made in Moldova’ exhibition in Chisinau this week, with an EU4Business event on EU-EaP cooperation in the wine sector this morning at 10am, and an EU4Environment roundtable on the Green Economy tomorrow. Both events are being livestreamed.
‘Made in Moldova’ brings together enterprises from across the country as well as their foreign business partners in a one-week event organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Moldova, with the aim of promoting local products and services, attracting investments, and intensifying the public-private dialogue. Besides displaying the results of country’s industrial development, ‘Made in Moldova’ offers a place where the business community, policy makers, and other stakeholders can discuss emerging challenges and opportunities for increasing competitiveness and sustainability.
EU4Business wine sector conference
As part of ‘Made in Moldova’, a sectoral conference on the wine sector will take place today at 10am local time, organised under the EU4Business: connecting companies (EU4BCC) programme. The conference – ‘EU and EaP Cooperation within Wine sector: Sector Attractiveness and Market Opportunities’ – is an occasion to gather stakeholders in the wine sector in the EU and the Eastern Partnership region to exchange on recent evolutions in the sector but also on challenges and opportunities. In addition to the opening remarks delivered by the EU Delegation to Moldova, DG AGRI will take part in the event to present the new approaches and policies on wine from the EU’s perspective.
EU4Business: connecting companies is funded under the EU4Business initiative and implemented by Eurochambres. The project aims at boosting sustainable economic development and supporting job creation in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries. Through B2B matching, twinning and study visits, SMEs and BSOs from the EaP countries connect with their counterparts in the EU. The project targets specifically five key sectors – wine, bio-and organic food, tourism, textile, and creative industries.
