Trade Balance in Moldova
Moldova - Trade BalanceFollowing swifter GDP growth in Q4 2021 due to stronger domestic dynamics, the breakout of war in neighboring Ukraine has weighed heavily on the economy so far this year. After industrial production and retail sales rose solidly in January, both swung into contractions in February and remained subdued in March. Similarly, the Russian invasion continued to hinder the external sector, with the trade deficit widening through March amid international sanctions on Russia—formerly one of Moldova’s key trading partners. To make matters worse, inflation surged to historic levels in the same month and hit yet another record high in April. On a positive note, on 12 May, the IMF approved an approximately EUR 135 million disbursement, and the EBRD lent EUR 50 million, in efforts to help authorities cope with the economic fallout stemming from the war in Ukraine.
