Investors' conferences in Moldova and Georgia will be held on the occasion of the visits of European Commission President José Manuel Barroso to those countries on 12 and 13 June 2014 respectively. The European Union has confirmed its objective to further strengthen the political association and economic integration with both countries, and aims to sign the Association Agreements including Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas (AA/DCFTAs) at the end of June 2014.
The conferences will focus on business activity and investment in Moldova and Georgia, because experience in other countries in Europe shows that that's where the new agreements will bring the biggest long-term economic benefits.
One of the main benefits of the conferences to investors in Moldova and Georgia will be its discussion of what the AA/DCFTAs will mean in practical terms for their businesses. The conferences will also provide opportunities for businesses to showcase themselves and to promote their products and services. International financial institutions and business support organisations will also provide participants with information about their activities in Moldova and Georgia.
