We consider the arrival of Banca Transilvania on the Moldovan market, a fundamental step in the modernization of the banking sector. An investment of the one of the biggest banks from Romania in Victoriabank is a good way to attract other banks to invest in Moldovan banking institutions. The goal of Banca Transilvania is to straighten out its financing for medium and small businesses, increase confidence in the investments in Moldova and into the future of its financial and banking system.
