CHISINAU (Moldova), October 18 (SeeNews) - Representatives of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development's (EBRD) board of directors are starting a two-day virtual visit to Moldova, the bank said on Monday.

The EBRD officials will meet with Moldovan policymakers, businesses and civil society organisations, the bank said in a press release.

Discussions will focus on the country’s new reform agenda and the government’s effort to build resilience in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The EBRD representatives will also hold virtual discussions with representatives from Moldova’s key financial institutions, and several small- and medium-sized enterprises who have benefitted from EBRD support, as well as spokespersons from civil society organisations in the country.

Earlier this month, the EBRD said it welcomed the commitment to reform of Moldova's new government and pledged fresh investment to support it.

"Implementing the administration’s ambitious agenda will send a strong signal to the private sector and help unlock jobs-generating investment by local and foreign investors alike," Matteo Patrone, managing director for Eastern Europe and the Caucasus at the EBRD, said at the time.
