On the sidelines of his 14-16 May visit to Tel-Aviv, Prime Minister Vlad Filat met Israeli Tourism Minister and co-chairman of the Moldovan-Israeli joint cooperation commission Stas Mesezhnikov, the government's communication and press relations department has reported.

The two officials discussed the Moldovan-Israeli bilateral relations. Filat said he was honoured to be the first Moldovan prime minister to visit Israel, noting that the two countries will mark the 20th anniversary of their diplomatic ties in June 2012.

Filat said that the government has been paying great attention to the trade and economic cooperation. He pointed out that the organization within his current visit of a business forum that will bring together over 60 Moldovan business people serves as an eloquent example in this respect.

"We rely on the involvement of businesses in the growth of foreign trade, which has already seen a positive development trend of 43.3 per cent in 2011 against 2010. Establishing direct contacts between entrepreneurs will make it possible to fully use the potential of those 128 Israeli companies operating in Moldova and to increase investments," Filat said.

The prime minister highlighted the importance of the joint inter-governmental commission for economic, trade, research and technical cooperation, noting that the organization of the commission's third meeting on 11 September 2012 would be very opportune.

Filat thanked the Israeli side for its willingness to implement a trilateral project in Moldova, for the creation of a reference laboratory for vegetable products.

For his part, Stas Mesezhnikov welcomed the headway in the Moldovan-Israeli ties and reiterated Israel's willingness to further back Moldova.
