International cooperation is essential for experience exchange, creating liaisons between business support organizations and aligning national practices with successful strategies from other countries. In 13 years of activity, ODIMM has made major efforts to strengthen the network of partners in order to fulfil the mission of increasing the competitiveness of the national economy. From the first years of activity, the European Union has supported the efforts of ODIMM in the development of the SME sector in the Republic of Moldova.

The impact of technical and financial assistance programs and international projects funded by the European Union has played a key role in increasing the competitiveness of the SME sector and the capacity of ODIMM to provide quality services to local entrepreneurs. Some of the results recorded over the years are illustrated in the Infographic.

Besides that, ODIMM actively participates, as a representative of the private sector, in platforms for small and medium enterprises at European level, in order to benefit of good practices in the field, but also to promote the SME support tools it has throughout the country. Today, many ODIMM initiatives are considered successful models in the Eastern European region and are multiplied in these countries to help reduce migration, increase investment in the economy and the well-being of the population.
