During October-November 2006 the Moldovan economy did not display any notable progress. On the whole, the industry continues to recess. The two important branches where the negative dynamics have reversed are the sugar and pastry industry. A 4 percent decrease of the agricultural production for the first nine months has been witnessed by October. The services continued their perky growth, mostly due to telecommunications and electric appliances sales. The services rendered to enterprises increased slower, particularly because of the difficulties reported in the transportation sector.
