ICC announces support to Moldova alongside government and private sector leaders


The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has announced plans to open an ICC Centre of Entrepreneurship (CoE) in Moldova, aiming to enable more small- and medium-sized entreprises in the country to trade and opening Moldova’s economy to global markets.


The establishment of a Moldova hub of the ICC Centre of Entrepreneurship stems from discussions between ICC and USAID on how the global private sector can further advance USAID’s Democracy Delivers Initiative, which seeks to drive progress and support to countries experiencing windows of democratic opportunity. ICC CoE Director Gabriel Petrus joined President of Moldova Maia Sandu in Chicago at the Moldovan American Convention to announce the plans. Speaking at the conference, organised by the Moldovan diaspora in the US and supported by USAID, Mr Petrus said:

“The CoE will enable entrepreneurs and smaller businesses in Moldova to harness the potential of trade and in turn create more sustainable livelihoods for Moldovan people and communities.”

One of the first programmes to be piloted out of the CoE in Moldova, will be the implementation of DHL’s GoTrade platform which aims to expand the reach and benefits of globalisation to connect people and improve lives.
