Abstract

In the period 2010-2013, the Republic of Moldova launched a number of initiatives to develop the trade policy in order to ensure a more facilitating legal framework for the implementation of economic and trade relations with the key foreign partners. An agreement on the creation of a free trade area in the CIS was signed in this period. Similarly, the Republic of Moldova started negotiating the Association Agreement with the European Union, which was initiated in November last year and is part of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA). This article aims to assess the possible main effects of signing the Association Agreement for the Moldovi0an agricultural sector, while examining its reaction, in case Moldova had opted for its integration into the Customs Union – Russian Federation, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.
