On June 13, the Customs Service’s leadership met with a representative from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in Moldova, as well as the team from the new USAID Program for Institutional and Structural Reforms in Moldova (MISRA).
USAID, through the Institutional and Structural Reform Program in Moldova (MISRA), provides prompt assistance to the economy of the Republic of Moldova in times of crisis.
The new collaboration is planned for the next five years (2022-2027) and sets priorities for cooperation and assistance in trade facilitation, institutional reform and mitigation, the effects of the regional crisis, including decongestion of cross-border traffic.
The objective of MISRA is to strengthen the efficiency of the state’s economic governance institutions. Support will be focused on long-term institutional and structural reform issues, but there is a great deal of openness in supporting the Customs Service right now, in its efforts to deal with the evolving regional context.

From 2012 to the present, the Customs Service has benefited from USAID’s assistance in Moldova through two programs, which have resulted in the development of a risk analysis system, the reform of customs evaluation procedures, the development of tools to facilitate the Republic of Moldova’s international trade, and the digitization and simplification of customs procedures, among other things.
