Discussions between Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy, Andrian Candu, and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will be held on the platform of the Russia-Moldova intergovernmental commission on trade and economic co-operation, co-chaired by the two men, the ministry said.
The Russian embargo, introduced on July 21 - two weeks before Moscow issued a wider ban on western produce - covers imports of Moldovan apples, plums, peaches and canned fruit. Russia also abolished duty-free exemptions for a number of Moldovan products such as meat, vegetables, sugar and wine.
Moldova is one of Europe’s poorest states, and its economy relies heavily on its agricultural exports. Moscow’s moves against it are widely seen as retaliation for the country’s decision to sign a free-trade deal and association agreement with the European Union.
According to the government, Moldovan agricultural producers might lose about $150 million under the worst of scenarios. Apple producers will incur the gravest losses as they were the second-largest suppliers to Russia after Poland. Last year, they exported about 180,000 tonnes.
