State Secretary of the Ministry of Economic Development and Digitalization Viorel Garaz presented at today’s cabinet meeting a draft decision on the amendment of the Government Decision No. 815 of August 2005 “On regulating the traffic of goods and services subject to the foreign trade activity of the Transnistrian region”, as well as the provision of electronic communications networks and services by them.
“The project is aimed at optimizing the process of rendering public services to economic agents from the eastern regions of the country, gradually bringing their activity to the strict requirements of the national legal framework and standardizing trade-economic requirements on both banks of the Dniester,” Viorel Garaz said.
The state secretary also mentioned that at present, Government Decision No. 815/2005 does not contain provisions on the conditions and manner of exclusion from the temporary register of economic agents from the Transnistrian region. Thus, the Public Service Agency cannot fulfil the requests of entrepreneurs from the Transnistrian region to be excluded from the State Register of Legal Entities of the Republic of Moldova. “In this context, we propose to supplement the normative act with provisions on the exclusion from the State Register of Legal Entities of economic agents from the Transnistrian region, previously enrolled by the Moldovan state registration authority,” Garaz added.
Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration Oleg Serebrian said that the term “Transnistria” appears in the Decision No. 815 to denote territories beyond the control of the constitutional authorities.
“The term appears in several normative acts, including the law adopted by then parliament. However, in the Government Action Plan for 2023, we used the term ‘Transnistrian region’. We propose to use it, to introduce this modification, namely ‘Transnistrian region’ with a small letter to denote territories beyond the control of the constitutional authorities,” Serebrian noted.
Prime Minister Dorin Recean said that the remark of the deputy prime minister for reintegration is very important. “We should continue this work to integrate economic agents from the left bank of the Dniester into the economic space and, moreover, into Moldova’s fiscal space,” Recean outlined. The cabinet members voted unanimously in favor of the draft decision submitted by the state secretary of the Economic Development and Digitalization Ministry.
