The purpose of the Moldova Structural Reform Program is to improve the business and trade enabling environment in Moldova by helping GOM institutions and the private sector accelerate the implementation of trade liberalization mechanisms, adopt structural and business enabling reforms, and improve strategic communications between the private and public actors. JC&A is in charge of Component 2: Pursue Structural Reforms to Improve the Business Enabling Environment of the program. Component 2 is aiding the GOM in the removal of explicit and implicit barriers to growth for small and medium-sized enterprises by focusing on a few areas of the World Bank Doing Business indicators, particularly trading across borders, dealing with construction permits, and getting credit. Financial sector stability, inspections reform, business reporting streamlining and facilitation of the implementation of the approved law on local trade notifications/authorizations are the priority areas that Component 2 works on. Other topics include streamlining of labor market regulations and promotion of e-Government and digital commercial solutions.
