After the approval of the Declaration of Independence (August 27, 1991), Moldova has been striving to strengthen its place among the democratic nations of the world and to reform the national economy. The appearance of the new socio-economic system opened to the world, the process to join our own efforts with the international community have produced significant changes not only in the nature, but also in the background, of the trade flows of agricultural products. Naturally, the trade with food products must be directed towards the markets ensuring the free movement of products through the progressive removal of restrictions on trade between countries and/or groups of countries, meeting the interests of producers and consumers. In the present paper, the authors focus on the market of food products, investigate the import and export of food products, the operation of the CIS market and Common Market, pursuant to which the authors come up with some proposals that would change the situation on the domestic food market for the better, and would accelerate the integration of the national market of agricultural goods into the EU Common Market.
