OECD Eurasia Dedicated Thematic Peer-review Session Webinar

Promoting Supply-Chain Linkages in Food [Snapshot of Moldova]

Growing international trade and improved access to the EU single market helps increase exports of food products, but the export potential of local producers is still largely untapped and, even on the domestic market, SMEs struggle to compete. This case study of Moldova’s food sector looks at ways to unleash its economic potential and manage the integration of agribusiness SMEs into value chains.
