The theme of Moldova’s pavilion at the World Expo is “My City Is Your City” showing beautiful landscapes of plains and forests as its décor and inverted-pyramid with screens on each side with entertainment programs as its main design element. The two highlights of the pavilion were Wine – lasting Value of Moldova that also included wine tasting sessions and Folk Art of the Republic of Moldova, represented by “decorative arts” such as ceramics, stonework and woodwork, wine rod, popular carpet and many more.

Thomas Moser and Ala Aydov joined the delegation of more than 80 Moldovan business people and government representatives, headed by the Prime Minister Vladimir Filat, in the trip to Shanghai and Beijing on 11th – 14th of September. The meetings on the agenda were the Shanghai Moldovan-Chinese Business Forum, the World Expo 2010 Shanghai, the tour of the pavilions, the official reception organized by the Republic of Moldova on the occasion of the Moldovan National Day at the Expo and the Beijing Moldovan – Chinese Business Forum.
“The Participation of Moldova at this Expo is a great opportunity to enhance the visibility of Moldova on the international arena. The Moldovan-Chinese Business Fora were a first step to strengthen the co-operation between Chinese and Moldovan companies. China is already an important trade partner of Moldova and Chinese companies will without a doubt be among the largest investors in Moldova in the future. We will facilitate the trade with China with the completion of the new container terminal at Giurgiulesti International Free Port and invite Chinese companies to invest in the free economic zone of the Giurgiulesti International Free Port” said Thomas Moser.
