Managed by the DAI/Nathan Group, this project, known as BIZTAR, is improving Moldova’s business enabling environment by reducing the administrative burden on the private sector, streamlining tax administration, curtailing opportunities for corruption, and improving access to government information.

In November 2008, BIZTAR determined that Moldova’s poor performance on the World Bank Doing Business indicators for trading across borders was impeding economic growth and investment.
