Over the past year, exports of Moldovan products to the Russian Federation have fallen by almost a third.

This was announced on April 10 by the Minister of Economy Dumitru Alaiba, NewsMaker reports.

The minister clarified that Moldova's exports to Russia decreased by 31%. At the same time, he noted that the European Union is currently the largest market for Moldovan producers.

In 2022, Moldova exported products worth more than $2.54 billion to the EU, the minister emphasized.

According to Alaina, the volume of exports to European destinations increased by 32% compared to 2021.

"Over the past 15 years, Moldova's economy has radically reoriented," he added.
