EIRA fact-finding mission to Moldova

A team from the Energy Charter Secretariat travelled to Chisinau, Moldova on a fact-finding mission. The primary objective of this mission was to collect information relevant to the 2018 Energy Investment Risk Assessment report (EIRA).

The Secretariat’s team had meetings with various stakeholders (government, private sector, legal practitioners) and gathered information regarding the policy, legal and regulatory environment of the country. This information is expected to facilitate the process of data validation as well as the preparation of a comprehensive energy investment risk assessment of Moldova.

EIRA 2018 will evaluate 30 countries. The findings will be elaborated in the final publication to be released later this year. With this new publication, the Energy Charter Secretariat hopes to contribute in governments’ efforts to lower investment risks and barriers, which might be detrimental to the investment climate of the participating countries.
