Moldova’s economy is in transition from a command economy to a more free-market oriented one. It is making progress, judging from the increase in its GNI per capita from 710 US $ in 2006 to 2450 US $ in 2015. Moldova's WB Doing Business rating has substantially improved from 83rd in 2006 to 63rd in 2015.
Starting a business has been made easier: from 10 procedures and 30 days in 2006 to 5 procedures and 6 days in 2015. Registering property used to take 6 procedures and 48 days in 2006, as against 5 procedures and 5.5 days in 2015.

Moldova’s employers’ national and international interests are being represented by the Confederatia Nationala a Patronatului din Republica Moldova (CNPM) a member of the International Organisation of Employers. DECP first contacted CNPM in 2006. DECP and CNPM concluded a partnership agreement in June 2008, in which the FNPAIA, the agricultural and food-industry association, was also mentioned as a beneficiary. DECP supports the advocacy initiatives of both CNPM and FNPAIA in order to increase their audience.
