Moldova is one of the more recent entrants to the Citizenship by Investment marketplace with a platform that was launched in 2018. It is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but one of the most diverse. Bordered by Romania and the Ukraine, Moldova has historically been a Romanian nation, so most of the population speaks Romanian. However, it went through a turbulent series of national and geographic boundaries between 1912 and 1991. Following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1994, Moldova adopted its own Constitution and implemented a parliamentary democracy. The nation is ruled by a President and Prime Minister, who divide responsibilities for the state and government functions, respectively.
Moldova has been a recent entrant into the modern economy, having been somewhat subsumed by the USSR during the Soviet period. The economy in Moldova is growing thoughtfully, however, and is reporting a 60% basis in the service sector. The country is growing, and urbanization is at 45%. There are sectors ripe for growth and investment, and the Moldovan government seems to recognize the opportunity for diversification through agreements with the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the EU, and in its CBI platform.
Moldova is a hilly country, with its primary mountain range generating from the Carpathian Mountains. The nation is not on the Black Sea, or any other large body of water, but benefits from the relative nearness in its climate. Moldova tends toward the cold side during the winter, but sports calm summers.
