Through its Moldova Competitiveness Project, USAID and Sweden support rural SMEs to improve markets for authentic tourism.

The Moldova Competitiveness Project (MCP), funded by USAID and the Swedish Government, has been supporting Moldova’s tourism industry since 2013 stimulating economic growth in even the most rural regions, stimulating the emergence of tourism entrepreneurs, and contributing to a reduction in poverty and migration. The Hospitality + Moldova program provides investments in rural guesthouses for infrastructure upgrades and promotion, developing capacity within the tourism industry.
