In 2023, the export of plums, cherries, apricots, sour cherries, and peaches increased by 82% compared to 2022. The figures were presented by Deputy Prime Minister Dumitru Alaiba, Minister of Economic Development and Digitalization, as reported by MOLDPRES.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the export value in this category amounted to 1.446 billion lei or over 81 million dollars. 61% of the exports went to the European Union. The main markets for our fruits are Romania (16%), Poland (12%), Germany (10%), Latvia (4%), and the Netherlands (3%).


“This growth is not just an economic indicator but the result of our farmers’ hard work. We will support them by diversifying export markets. We have obtained an extension of the liberalized trade with the EU, signed the Free Trade Agreement with EFTA, and are progressing in updating the Free Trade Agreement with Turkey. We make these efforts to support all sectors of our economy. To provide quality products and services,” stated Dumitru Alaiba.

In July 2023, the European Parliament decided to extend for one year the suspension of duties and quotas on imports applicable to products exported from the Republic of Moldova to the European Union.
