USAID Moldova Future Technologies Activity
In the global context of the COVID-19 pandemic, new consumer trends and digitization are reshaping markets and firms. Several high-potential economic sectors in Moldova have an opportunity to pivot their recovery and emerge from the pandemic stronger and more successful than before.
The USAID Moldova Future Technologies Activity (FTA) continues USAID’s 15-year legacy of sector competitiveness programming, which includes the Competitiveness Enhancement and Economic Development I and II projects and the Moldova Competitiveness Project. FTA works with business associations and similar organizations to increase their organizational capacity, financial sustainability, and advocacy effectiveness and to improve the ecosystems for workforce development and investment. The activity also collaborates with small and medium enterprises to increase their competitiveness, value-added exports, workforce skills for employment opportunities, access to finance, and climate resilience.
By amplifying the voices of business associations, fostering sustainable global partnerships with the private sector, and aligning the workforce with market needs, the activity strives to drive the next leap in Moldovan innovation and Western market integration.
