Moldova will establish offices in Turkey to strengthen a free-trade deal signed last year, the country’s ambassador to Ankara, Igor Bolboceanu, has said.

Bolboceanu spoke exclusively ahead of a two-day Moldova visit by senior Turkish businessmen and officials, including Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

The two-day visit will be the first ever official trip at the prime ministerial level from Turkey to Moldova.

“An increasing number of Turkish businessmen are contacting our diplomatic mission to obtain more detailed information regarding the business climate and investment opportunities in my country, seeking … to establish contacts with potential business partners from Moldova,” Bolboceanu said.

“The enforcement of the agreement, beginning Nov. 1, 2016, has significantly boosted bilateral trade, opened the Turkish market to Moldovan products and vice versa, the Moldovan market for famous Turkish products.

Bolboceanu said both sides were “fairly optimistic” bilateral trade could hit $1 billion.

Moldovan broadcaster TRM and its state news agency Moldpres will sign cooperation agreements with Turkey’s TRT and Anadolu Agency.
