On 15 November, the European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE) with the support of EU4Business is organising an economic forum in the Moldovan capital Chisinau.
Titled ‘Republic of Moldova: Banking Trends Versus Economic Developments’, the all-day forum will take place at the Radisson Blu Leogrand Hotel & Convention Centre.
The forum will be broken up into three panels, each with a keynote address followed by a discussion:
- PANEL 1: Developments & trends in the banking sector: prudency vs credit appetite
- PANEL 2: Lending in Local Currency: opportunities in the current macroeconomic environment
- PANEL 3: Economic expectations vs banking sector potential: financing businesses
The forum will finish with a networking cocktail.
The European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE) was initiated by KfW Development Bank (KfW) with the financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Commission under the EU4Business initiative.
EFSE focuses on assisting local financial sectors in strengthening their ability to ensure adequate and sustainable financing. The funding the EFSE provides as finance primarily for micro and small enterprises (MSEs) – but also for private households in the form of home improvement loans – is channelled to these loan customers through local partner lending institutions.
