Malta, Moldova Sign Double Tax Agreement
Maltese Foreign Affairs Minister George Vella met with Moldavian Deputy Prime Minister Natalia Gherman to sign a dual taxation treaty (DTT) and a joint declaration, according to a press release issued by the Maltese Government. The joint declaration confirms Malta’s support for Moldova’s bid for greater integration in the EU.
Malta joined the EU in 2004 and promises to offer Moldova its assistance in many areas including tourism, education, and ICT based on its own experience of recent European integration.
The move is in line with the EU’s encouragement of the further European integration of Moldova and Georgia, and comes ahead of the conclusion by Moldova of a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) with the European Union, which is due to be signed in June this year.
