Euromonitor, nr. 25

Această ediție a Euromonitorului acoperă evoluțiile din trimestrul III anul 2012 în implementarea reformelor determinate de vectorul de integrare europeană. În domeniile economice monitorizate, un progres important a fost atestat în domeniul piețelor și instituțiilor financiare, printr-o serie de modificări regulatorii pentru sporirea transparenței băncilor comerciale și ajustării procedurilor de raportare financiară la standardele internaționale. Problema principala care persistă este transparentizarea drepturilor de proprietate în sistemul financiar, atât bănci, cât și instituții nebancare. Publicarea legilor în domeniul concurenței și ajutorului de stat încă nu este urmată și de restructurarea agenției reglementatoare și consolidarea cadrului regulator și metodologic. Au continuat activ negocierile pe marginea ZLSAC cu UE și Acordului de Liber Schimb cu Turcia, dar, deoarece regiunea transnistreană nu este parte activă a procesului, deocamdată nu este prea clar cu va fi asigurată implementarea efectivă a acestora pe teritoriul întregii țări. În domeniul dezvoltării durabile și sociale, nu a fost observat nici un progres în ceea ce privește crearea Consiliului Economico-Social, autoritățile implicate demonstrând un interes minimal pentru crearea efectivă a acestuia.
