Analytical Note based on official statistics: Entrepreneurial Activity in territorial perspective
Entrepreneurship development among regions is different, both quantitatively and qualitatively and the capital city is advantaged in this respect. There are 163,974 legal entities and individual entrepreneurs registered in the State Register. Over half of them are registered in Chisinau municipality.
In Moldova there is an uneven concentration of economic potential at the local level, which causes major differences in living standards between urban and rural areas within the regions.
This analytical note aims to increase the understanding and use of statistical data disaggregated at the level of regions, statistical regions and districts. The analysis is operating with statistics provided by several state institutions such as the National Bureau of Statistics, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Transport and Roads Infrastructure, Centre for state information resources, Agency “Apele Moldovei” and other institutions.
