"The good news from Chisinau: Moldova confirmed that it will not renew the restrictive measures, quotas as of January 1, 2017. This was stated by my colleague Octavian Calmac at a meeting of the Intergovernmental Ukrainian-Moldovan joint commission on trade and economic cooperation. Let me remind you that after the introduction of these events on May 6 this year, we have done a great job with the Moldovan side to protect the exporters of the Ukrainian products in Moldova", wrote Stepan Kubiv.
