Our relationship with Moldova

The New Zealand Embassy in Moscow has been accredited to Chişinău since April 2013.  The visit by the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy the Rt Hon Jim Bolger in April 2014 was the first high level visitor from New Zealand since the establishment of the accreditation. Most of the engagement between our two countries occurs in the multilateral context, in particular the United Nations, where we both share similar positions on issues such as nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.

Moldovans and New Zealanders also share a love for rugby with the All Blacks being well-known in Moldova. During his April 2014 visit to Chişinău, Special Envoy Bolger met with senior officials of the Moldovan Rugby Union. Although two-way trade is limited, it has been increasing in recent years.
