Debt crisis, export evolution and exchange rate — reflections on Moldova
Iurie Gotisan, July 15, 2011
Paradoxically or not, Moldova's economy is on the rise, the least accordingly to statistics, despite the situation in the region and not only. Or, the economic growth in the 1st quarter of 2011 exceeded 8 percent, a unique level in this area[]

Lately I witnessed several waves of fuel price increases. First, the immediate impact of higher prices will obviously be on the pockets of drivers.

Economy: retrospectives 2009 vs. forecasts 2010
Iurie Gotisan, December 31, 2009
The economic crisis had more or less devastating effects on Moldova in 2009 for sure. The Moldovan crisis does not have distinct particularities in general.
