Twinning with the Moldovan Competition Authority

Early December 2010, in Chisinau, Moldova, Director General Dr. Theodor Thanner signed a twinning agreement between the Austrian Competition Authority (BWB) and the Moldovan antitrust authority. The BWB has pulled together as partner with Competition Authorities in Latvia and in Romania to support Moldova's competition authority. After months of evaluations by the European Commission, the authorities from Austria, Romania and Latvia got the award of contract. The project will provide the expert advice in developing an efficient and effective anti-trust authority in Moldova.
