Chisinau, 14 Sep. /MOLDPRES/- Minister of Economy Sergiu Gaibu had a meeting with President of the Polish Development Bank (BGK) Beata Daszyńska-Muzyczka yesterday in Warsaw. They approached areas of mutual interest, as well as opportunities to support Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), through accessible and competitive instruments.
Sergiu Gaibu welcomed the Polish Bank's interest in the country and reiterated the government's priority of creating fair conditions for investors, which would lead to the significant development of the business environment and creation of more jobs.
"Recently, we have been informed and inspired a lot by the Polish development model, based on the Polish Development Bank and the Polish Agency for Entrepreneurship Development, with which we also initiated a dialogue. We rely on a cooperation based on the exchange of experience, tools and financial products, on the development of joint programs for entrepreneurs and guidance in exploring the potential offered by the EU candidate country status that Moldova has obtained. Moldovan entrepreneurs need support in overcoming the current crises, and the reduction of the competitiveness gap and the financing gap will lead to an increase in the level of cooperation between the entrepreneurs of the two countries - the Republic of Moldova and Poland", the official said.
The Bank's representatives were open to collaboration and said that there are areas in which they could be involved in development activities with the support of the EU Neighborhood Instrument, development cooperation and international cooperation.
The Polish Development Bank administers about 40 programs and funds, both from national and European sources, and operates in more than 70 countries of the world. Among the areas of interest of the Polish Bank are energy efficiency, environmental protection, rural/urban development and supporting SMEs.
