As a result of doubling of quotas for Moldavian-grown fruit
to countries of the European Union (EU), exporters will be able to ship up to 40,000 tons of apples, up to 2 tons of tomatoes
and up to 10,000 tons of plums and grapes.
The decision was announced at a meeting by Dacian Ciolos, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, with Nikolai Timofti, President of Moldova, as reported by NOI.md.
The EU is to support that Moldavian exporters meet the highest quality standards and that the fruit
selected for export are carefully tested. To do so, Moldova is to receive a total of 120 million euros for the necessary modernization of its agricultural industrial complex. The first tranche of 64 million euros is to be issued in July.
Farmers will realize that they have only won from the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU, Ciolos said.
