According to Yan Wenbin, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Moldova, a quick development of commercial partnership between China and Moldova took place. The volume of trade between the two countries increased from only 70,000 dollars in the beginning of the establishment of the diplomatic relations, 30 years ago, to 849 million dollars in 2021. As a result, China became the fourth big commercial partner of Moldova.
The ambassador said that more and more Chinese consumers appreciate the Moldovan wine, so China is now one of the principal export markets for it. The export of Moldovan wine to China is actively promoted by China’ Embassy, along with Chinese and Moldovan partners. A live broadcasting on the promotion and sale of Moldovan wines took place on the Douyin platform not so long ago, at an initiative by the Embassy of China in Moldova, and it had favorable results.
The head of the Chinese diplomatic mission says that China is willing to import also other highly qualitative farming products from Moldova, being the biggest consumption market of the world. The entrance on the Chinese market of the edible vegetable oil and peeled walnuts from Moldova has been approved. The ambassador is quite aware of the fact that the Moldovan farming products have temporarily lost some traditional export markets, because of the conflict in the region. The access of more and more Moldovan agricultural products to the Chinese market is being actively stimulated be The Embassy of China.
According to Yan Wenbin, China has always provided, as far as it was possible, support for the social and economic development of Moldova as a good friend and partner. The photovoltaic power station from Criuleni, constructed with the support of the Chinese government and put into operation in the beginning of this year, represents the most recent example. A special importance of this project is especially significant in the context of the energy crisis in Moldova. Besides, the project of Chinese Medicine Centre, the third phase, carried out with the support of China, which will be soon implemented, has been officially approved by the Moldovan government.
