The Moldovan pharmaceutical market presents limited opportunities for investors in the short term , but with the country opening up to European free-trade zone, we expect the pharmaceutical market to feel the positive benefit of closer ties with the European Union. Moldova's economic outlook will continue to have a significant impact on the pharmaceutical market's growth trajectory over the forecast period .

* Healthcare: MDL11.21bn (USD895mn) in 2013 to MDL12.05bn (USD941mn) in 2014; +7.5% in local currency terms and +5.1% in US dollar terms.
