In late 2021 - early 2022, the Republic of Moldova suffered a huge shock due to price increase which severely affected the population, economic agents and the national budget, economist Veaceslav Ionita says.
He argues Moldova’s biggest problem related to natural gas remains unsolved, actualitati.md reports.
The National Bank of Moldova forecasts 31% inflation in the third quarter of this year.
“According to our estimates, inflation will peak in the third quarter of the year, to be followed by a downward trend. (...) Uncertainties are quite strong, there are risks of new shocks, there are tariff adjustments, we do not know when and how, therefore the uncertainty margin is quite extensive,” the National Bank governor said.
