Commission: Proposal on extending duty free, quota free imports from Moldova

12 MAY 2023

On 2 May the European Commission proposed to renew and expand the suspension of import duties and quotas on Moldovan exports to the European Union – known as Autonomous Trade Measures (ATMs) – for another year.

This means in practice that exports of seven agricultural products from Moldova which are subject to tariff-rate quotas will now be fully liberalised: tomatoes, garlic, table grapes, apples, cherries, plums and grape juice.

The proposal will now be considered by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union with a view to ensuring the seamless transition from the current regime of ATMs to the new one.
