History[edit]

Ministry of Economy of Moldova was founded on 1 June 1990, as Ministry of National Economy of SSR Moldova, while Moldova was part of Soviet Union. Over years, it was a few times restructured and renamed, as follows:

  • Ministry of Economy and Finances (1991-1992)
  • Ministry of Economy (1992-1997)
  • Ministry of Economy and Reforms (1997-2001)
  • Ministry of Economy (2009-2017)
  • Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure (2017-present)

In 2017 as part of the government refom in Moldova, the Ministry of Economy was renamed to Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, absorbing the Ministry of Transport and Roads Infrastructure, and the Ministry of Informational Technologies and Communications, becoming their legal successor.[1] Also this ministry took the domain of constructions from the former Minister of Construction and Regional Development.[2]
