Deep And Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement Moldova

To learn more about the implementation of the Trade and Sustainable Development (TSD) chapter in trade agreements – TSD Committees and Civil Society Meetings The EU-Ukraine DCFTA came into force provisionally on 1 January 2016. [33] According to the European Commission, the DCFTA will provide Ukraine with a framework for modernising its trade relations and economic development by opening markets through the phasing out of tariffs and quotas and comprehensively harmonising legislation, standards and regulations in different trade-related sectors, creating the necessary conditions for aligning important sectors of the Ukrainian economy with EU standards. [1] „Unlike traditional free trade agreements, it provides for both the freedom of establishment in the services and non-service sectors, with limited reserves, and the extension of the internal market for a number of essential services sectors as soon as Ukraine actually implements the EU acquis.“ [1] In addition, „Ukraine has access to the EU single market for the sectors concerned,“ leading to an „unprecedented level of integration“. [1] The CCFTA establishes a free trade area between the EU and the Republic of Moldova, in accordance with the principles of the World Trade Organization. In order to exploit new business opportunities, SMEs must not only increase their competitiveness, but also meet the new food, technical and quality safety standards resulting from the implementation of the DCFTA, as well as certain measures included in the part of the association agreements for economic and sectoral cooperation, such as the environment, employment and social policies. An important part of ACFTA is the alignment of Moldovan trade legislation with certain EU rights. The adoption by the Republic of Moldova of an EU approach to policy-making aims to improve governance, strengthen the rule of law and create more economic opportunities by extending the EU market to Moldovan goods and services. In the case of the Republic of Moldova, it is expected to eliminate all import taxes for the vast majority of products. For the Republic of Moldova, a phase of process liberalisation (between 3 and 10 years depending on the product) is planned for certain sensitive products (most agricultural products such as wine, certain processed agricultural products, meat products, fruits and vegetables, textile products). Some products are unaffected and are exploited under tariff quotas (volleys and pork, certain dairy products, processed products or sugar, etc.). However, the tariff quota covers traditional trade flows between the EU and the Republic of Moldova.
