Chisinau declares Moldova's Customs Service fully controls export from Transnistria

The Ministry of Reintegration says the Customs Service of the Republic of Moldova has full control over the export from the Transnistrian region. At the same time, the Moldovan customs agencies control only 10% of the imports into Transnistria.

According to the Ministry of Reintegration, the establishment of full control over exports is due to the protocol on the border crossing regime for goods signed by the customs services of Moldova and Ukraine on May 15, 2003.

By November 1, the State Registration Chamber of Moldova has registered 248 Transnistrian economic operators, including 135 on a temporary basis and 113 on a permanent basis.

The goods exported and imported by the Transnistrian businesses, which were checked by Moldova's Customs Service between March 1 - November 1, 2006, totaled over 3.642 billion lei, including over 3.98 billion lei exports and 543,913 million lei imports. Metal products account for over 74% of the exports.

On November 1, the Government extended the decision No.1001 of September 19, 2001 regarding the declaration of goods by the Transnistrian economic agents until January 1, 2008./
